Time: Walker '62 Among Top Envoys

Edward S. Walker, Jr. '62, the Christian A. Johnson Distinguished Professor of Global Political Theory, was recently cited by Time magazine as "among the finest American diplomats to have served in the State Department."

Solved: Mystery of Nancy Drew

Once the nation's favorite 16-year-old amateur detective and the inspiration for all sorts of mid-20th-century girl power, Nancy Drew is turning out to have more lives than, well, ­Catwoman. Just when the teen-mystery idol — deconstructed by feminist critics and often diluted by publishers since her heyday from the 1930s to the '50s — seemed a candidate for cultural irrelevance, Nancy is back in the spotlight with a newly revealed fan and advocate: incoming Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
