Retired U.S. Army General Colin L. Powell, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, will present the inaugural address in the recently established "Great Names Series" at Hamilton College.

Powell will discuss a broad range of current national and international issues when he addresses "The Management of Crisis and Change" on Monday, April 1. His 7:30 p.m. (note time change from 8 p.m.) address in the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House will be open to the public at no charge. Off-campus groups of 20 or more wishing to attend the event are asked to provide advance notification prior to March 27 by calling the Office of Student Activities at 859-4194.

The Great Names Series at Hamilton was established by college trustees as part of the Residential Life Study announced last spring. It is designed to bring as many as four national or international leaders in government, business, science and the arts to the college each year.

"This series will bring prominent leaders to Hamilton's campus so that our students can meet and question people who have shaped political and cultural life," said Hamilton President Eugene M. Tobin. "General Powell's broad international appeal and his direct involvement in major U.S. policy decisions make him an ideal candidate to kick off this series.

"In addition," Tobin said, "General Powell is one of the few people in American life who has crystallized the hopes and dreams of a generation of Americans. "He is an excellent speaker and we are privileged to bring him to Central New York."

For more information about General Powell's visit to Hamilton please contact the event coordinator, Tom Brush, at 859-4656.
