Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein talk rescheduled for March 9

A talk by His Royal Highness Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein, ambassador to the United Nations from the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on "Norms of Justice and the International System" has been rescheduled for Tuesday, March 9. The event, part of the 1999 Foreign Affairs Symposium, will take place at 8 p.m. in the Garrett Room of the MSE Library at Homewood.

Hussein's visit, originally scheduled for February, was postponed due to the death of his cousin, King Hussein of Jordan.

Goucher's president emerita and 'The Historical Whodunit'

Move over, Hercule Poirot and Inspector Dagleish and make way for Brother Cadfael, Sergeant Cribb, Benjamin Franklin and even Jane Austen. Detective stories set in the past--and frequently featuring historical figures as sleuth or victim--have become increasingly popular in the last 10 years.

Friends of the Johns Hopkins University Libraries will visit some of those chilling and suspenseful characters when Rhoda M. Dorsey presents "The Historical Whodunit" at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 9, in the Garrett Room of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library on the Homewood campus. Dorsey will survey some of the most successful authors of this genre and pay respect to professional historians, who have proved to be able detectives themselves.

A historian, Dorsey in 1974 became the first woman president of Goucher College, a position she held for 20 years. Admission is free and open to the public. For further information, call 410-516-8327.
