Margaret Chase Smith Library Leeke-Shaw Lecture

October 29, 1:00 PM


The Margaret Chase Smith Library is pleased to announce Pamela White as the speaker for the 2021 Leeke-Shaw Lecture on International Affairs. This lecture is cosponsored by the Mid-Maine Global Forum.

Ambassador White had a long career as a diplomat. Following graduation from the University of Maine in 1971, she served in Cameroon as a Peace Corps volunteer. In 1978 she joined the United States Agency for International Development. Over the next two decades, she worked on a variety of foreign aid projects, primarily in Africa. In 2010 she was appointed US Ambassador to The Gambia and two years later she became Ambassador to Haiti.

Due to the lingering effects of COVID, this annual event will once again have to be offered via Zoom. It will take place from noon to 1 PM on Friday, October 29. You can register here. All who pre-register will receive the Zoom invitation close to the date of the program.

For more information, call the Library at 474-7133. Read more about Pamela White.
