Honoring Secretary James A. Baker, III
The Hamilton Lugar School will honor former US Secretary of State and Treasury James A. Baker III at its exclusive Annual Scholarship Event.
Rep. Lee H. Hamilton, who celebrates his 90th birthday in April, will introduce Secretary Baker. The veteran statesmen co-chaired the Iraq Study Group, the 2006 blue-ribbon commission panel that recommended options for US policy in Iraq. Secretary Baker, who was also White House Chief of Staff in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, will be interviewed by New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser and New York Times Chief White House correspondent Peter Baker, co-authors of the New York Times Best Seller, "The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III."
