JHU 125TH Anniversary Event Rescheduled

Snow-delayed Brody address moved to March 27

WHAT: President William R. Brody's address to the Johns Hopkins community on the occasion of the university's 125th anniversary, postponed last month due to snow, has been rescheduled.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 27, 2001, at 4 p.m. EST.

WHERE: Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

DETAILS: The 125th anniversary address was originally scheduled for Feb. 22, the anniversary of the day in 1876 when the university officially opened and its first president, Daniel Coit Gilman, was installed. Snow forced the postponement of the anniversary event.

President Gilman's speech in 1876 [see www.jhu.edu/125th/links/gilman.html] laid out his vision not only for Johns Hopkins, but also for the modern American research university. Johns Hopkins was the first such institution, dedicated not just to teaching but equally to advancing human knowledge through research and scholarship.

President Brody's talk will, in a way, update Gilman's speech. He will lay out his views on where Johns Hopkins -- and research universities generally -- should be heading in the 21st century.

Reporters wishing to attend should please contact Dennis O'Shea at (410) 516-7109 so a seat can be reserved for you.
