The Fletcher School continues to be that great hope at a time when nations are tested with a new financial crisis, as well as by tension between governments, cultures and religions... There is much work to be done, and the role of the Fletcher education has never been more relevant. In 1933, the revered historian and scholar of international relations James T. Shotwell addressed the first class of students at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy with a lecture titled, “The Task of Diplomacy Today.” History tells us that at this particular time, seventy-five years ago, diplomacy was in demand, with Hitler and the Third Reich on the rise and Japan expanding its position in Asia. Similar to today, the world also faced economic crises, most notably with the United States’ Great Depression, which was at its height when Fletcher came into existence. In many ways, the School’s founding was an act of great hope in a time of deep despair. The Fletcher School continues to be that great hope at a time when nations are tested with a new financial crisis, as well as by tension between governments, cultures and religions. Hope springs from the collaboration we are witnessing as countries avoid isolationism and work together to weather the financial and ideological conflict storms. There is much work to be done, and the role of the Fletcher education has never been more relevant.

and students on our seventy-five-year history, including insight from one of our own, German Ambassador to the United States Klaus Scharioth, F74. In his keynote speech, Scharioth offered a European perspective on the financial condition that has rocked the global economy to its core. As is true of all institutions across the nation, Tufts, and Fletcher, is not immune to the current economic turmoil. As financial markets slide downward and remain volatile, The Fletcher School finds itself in a situation where we must make an even greater effort to set priorities and allocate scarce resources prudently. Now, more than ever, we need the strong support of all Fletcher alumni and friends in The Fletcher Fund and our capital campaign to assure the School’s continuing success in these difficult times.

Fletcher Looks Ahead to the Future As we celebrate and reflect on 75 years of preparing the world’s leaders, we eagerly look ahead to the future in the form of Fletcher’s impressive 2008 incoming class. An academically and professionally accomplished group of individuals, the 248 newest members of the Fletcher community were selected through a highly competitive process from a pool of over 1,600 applicants, and include students enrolled in our newest degree programs: the Master of International Business (MIB) and Master of Laws in International Law (LLM). The inaugural MIB class is diverse, talented, and experienced. They have demonstrated deep international exposure, solid academics, and proven professional skills. More than two-thirds of the class has significant private sector experience from companies including ExxonMobil, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Booz Allen Hamilton, Proctor & Gamble, and Royal Bank of Scotland. The remaining third comes from the public sector, non-profits, and the military. On the whole, the MIB students are looking for truly international careers that span the public and private sectors.

officers, returned Peace Corps volunteers, and lawyers, to journalists, intelligence analysts, community organizers, and marketing directors.

In August, Fletcher also welcomed the inaugural LLM class, consisting of sixteen dynamic students who share impressive credentials and a commitment to international law. The class is geographically and professionally diverse, with students from twelve countries, representing the continents of North and South America, Asia, Europe and Africa. Their work experience encompasses academe, public international law firms, non-governmental organizations, judicial clerkships, and ministries of foreign affairs and trade.

Overall, the incoming class is made up of students representing six continents and fifty-seven countries, including: Nepal, Rwanda, Iran, Afghanistan, and Colombia. They range in age from twenty-one to forty-eight and have earned degrees from top colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. While they have unique backgrounds and individual goals, they share a common commitment to engage in international affairs and an aspiration to make meaningful and important contributions to the world. Only halfway through their first semester, the 2008 incoming class has already begun to engage, challenge, and enrich the Fletcher community.

MIB and LLM students join the newest members of our Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD), mid-career Master of Arts (MA), and Ph.D. programs who come to us with a wealth of academic, professional, and life experiences from a varied array of disciplines, industries, and sectors. They have studied fields such as political science, engineering, business, and history and held positions ranging from diplomats, military

Keeping Murrow’s Legacy Alive at Fletcher By Rebecca POLLARD Pierik

The students filed into the dining hall for the meeting, covered from head to toe in traditional burkas, except for their faces, which, in keeping with tradition, they revealed within university walls. “ While leading a recent tour of the Middle East, former ambassador to the Middle East and Tufts professor William Rugh brought 100 American visitors to lunch with students at a women’s college in Dubai. The students filed into the dining hall for the meeting, covered from head to toe in traditional burkas, except for their faces, which, in keeping with tradition, they revealed within university walls. “At first sight, the students probably confirmed stereotypes held by the American visitors just because of how they were dressed,” says Rugh. However, as the Americans mingled with the female students, many of them began to see that these students did not fit the stereotype. “The young women were bright, assertive, very focused on education and careers—little like the Americans expected,” says Rugh. After the trip, one of the American tourists called Rugh to say the experience had changed his life, and that he wanted to know what he could do to help Americans to understand the complexities of Arab culture more fully. After forty-one years as a diplomat, educator and author, Rugh has observed again and again how stereotypes and misunderstandings dissolve in the face of this kind of cultural exchange. An ambassador to the Middle East for thirty-one years, Rugh worked in nations such as Qatar, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia to build understanding of U.S. foreign policy. Then in 1995, he took over leadership of AmidEast, a private company that provides cross-cultural education for Americans and Middle Eastern people. Now, as the new Edward R. Murrow Professorship of Public Diplomacy at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy—a position endowed during Beyond Boundaries: The Campaign for Tufts—Rugh plans to continue his work bridging cultural divides though education. He says he feels especially honored his title carries Murrow’s name. “I started my career as a junior officer with the United States Information Agency in 1961—the same year that Edward R. Murrow became the agency’s director,” recalls Rugh of the agency that was charged with communicating the official U.S. position to nations abroad. “I really admired him. We all did. He is recognized as the best director the agency ever had.” Widely acknowledged as one of the most influential

journalists in our country’s history, Murrow also made significant contributions to public diplomacy that are less well-recognized, according to his son, Casey Murrow. “Most people know my father for his career in journalism, but biographers often gloss over his later years as director of the U.S. Information Agency,” says the younger Murrow, who was only eight years old when his father took on Senator Joseph McCarthy in a series of televised reports that helped bring about the end of the “Red Scare.” “When President Kennedy asked him to lead the Information Agency, he felt it was his duty to his country and a critical point in his career. He wanted to make the agency’s work more about reporting and less a public relations venture.” To extend his father’s legacy of excellence in public diplomacy, Casey Murrow joined with alumni and friends of the Fletcher School to initiate the professorship. He says Rugh, with his lifelong dedication to bridging cultural divides through education, is uniquely qualified to hold this position. “My father was deeply committed to educating the public, and I’m thrilled that the Fletcher School is leveraging its resources to train tomorrow’s leaders in public diplomacy,” says Casey Murrow, who himself heads an educational nonprofit in Putney, Vermont. The Edward R. Murrow Center at the Fletcher School holds the senior Murrow’s complete records and his library, and provides ongoing programming geared toward advancing the field. The younger Murrow states, “I think my father would have been honored to know that his work continues to have the deep influence that it does.”

Edward Murrow’s Legacy and the Real World Broadcast News Remarks by Harry Radliffe, F73 given at the Murrow 100th Anniversary Conference: “Public Diplomacy and International Citizenship” Tuesday, 15 April 2008 Good afternoon Dean, members of the faculty, students, guests, It’s a real pleasure to be with you here and to be a part of your annual forum on Murrow. Quite frankly, it’s also a relief to be out of my office in New York. You may have noticed a lot of news reports recently speculating, again, about the future of the organization that employs me [CBS]. If it seems that CBS News is in perpetual upheaval, one explanation is the inordinate amount of time our colleagues and competitors in the press spend discussing and speculating about CBS News. There’s a direct correlation to the reason we receive all that attention and the reason we are all here. It boils down to one man: Edward R. Murrow. CBS News receives an inordinate amount of attention because News is the house that Ed Murrow and his band of brothers (and one sister) built. It’s a house that, with the exception of two years, has been my home for my entire professional career. If it seems that our house is a little unstable, I would not deny it. We have our disagreements, and a habit of airing them openly and loudly. Animal House comes to mind—or some sort of dysfunctional family. Some of my colleagues say that the factional warfare at CBS News resembles, in part, the war in Iraq. Over there, you have the Shia, the Sunni and the Kurds. Over here, we have our factions, too. So, in the interest of full disclosure, I should tell you that I’m here as a representative of the Kurdish faction of CBS News—also known as 60 Minutes. But if you can get past all the titillation and sensationalism that inevitably accompanies a medium that reaches into millions of people’s homes, there’s a better explanation for the focus on us. The spotlight on the goings on at CBS News is part of a broader discussion about the future of journalism itself and the future

“The spotlight on the goings on at CBS News is part of a broader discussion about the future of journalism itself...” of broadcast journalism in particular. These are interesting and dangerous times in journalism. The annual report on The State of the News Media describes a “new era of shrinking ambitions,” “fragmentation,” and oversupply with “too many news organizations doing the same thing.” The old business models

are dated. Traditional advertising is drying up, and people are still trying to figure out how to make money on the Internet. We are probably in the midst of a fundamental retrenchment in the news business. Newspapers, radio, and TV are all in turmoil as costs skyrocket. Every once in a while when I come back from a shoot somewhere, they show me the final tally of costs on my story. They’re shockingly high. At the same time, like the annual report says, there’s increasing audience fragmentation. That just means that with hundreds of channels, or choices available to you, it’s not surprising that there aren’t as many eyeballs watching CBS, NBC and ABC as there were when there were only three networks. Ah, the good old days. None of this is new. These trends have been developing for years. The dilemma is how to solve it, and the future is anything but clear. The attempt to chart a path to the future has inevitably led to conflict and major soul searching, especially regarding broadcast news. You have to remember that the networks are a business, driven to earn profits. While a particular news program can be profitable, there’s a natural conflict between news gathering and the bottom line. No one outlined the issues with greater clarity than Ed Murrow. In a speech to the Radio and TV News Directors Association, Murrow laid out the dilemma. In my opinion in what is the most important speech in the history of broadcasting, Murrow described television this way. He said, “This is instrument that can teach. It can illuminate. Yes, it can even inspire.” He went on to add, “But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise, it is merely wires and lights in a box.” Basically, he’s saying it’s up to us. Murrow made that speech fifty years ago. He could have written it yesterday. So you see this debate’s been going on for a while. I was originally asked to speak to you about Murrow’s world at CBS News. I wish I could. I wish I could have been one of “Murrow’s boys.” The news organization they built from scratch lured me and many of my colleagues to broadcast journalism in general and to CBS News in particular. But by the time I joined CBS News, Murrow was long gone, driven out by the same dilemmas and frustrations we still deal with today. But Murrow’s legacy permeated the CBS News I joined. He


was the reason I joined CBS News. He was the reason I got into broadcast journalism. He believed that news was a sacred trust, that news reported accurately and fairly could not only inform, it could change things. News and information were powerful. They still are. CBS was the only place I wanted to work. I used the word “joined” a moment ago when I mentioned my beginnings at CBS. I used that word intentionally. For me, and many of my colleagues, working for CBS News—the house Murrow built—was more than a job; it was a calling. “Joining” CBS News was like joining the Church. Journalism was our religion. Murrow’s DNA flowed through the veins of CBS News. He was the north star, our guiding light. When I started and for many years after, some of the original members of his team—Charles Collingwood, Eric Sevareid, Douglas Edwards and Richard C. Hottellet—were still working there. Walter Cronkite had not been one of Murrow’s boys, but he inherited the DNA and was driven by the same passions that drove Murrow. Those same passions still drive many of us. I’ve had the honor and the pleasure to work with some of the giants in the history of broadcast journalism—Walter Cronkite, Harry Reasoner, Peter Jennings, Ed Bradley, and Mike Wallace. Steve Kroft, Scott Pelley, Leslie Stahl, and Bob Simon, my colleagues at 60 Minutes, are all driven by the standards Murrow set. I hope this doesn’t sound like some corporate PR pitch, but if you could see and hear the shouting matches that take place in our shop every day, you might be surprised. They’re not about ratings, although we all want to know if anyone’s watching, they’re mostly about journalism, language, facts, and fairness. CBS sent Murrow to Europe to be the director of talks. He got into news by accident. Casey was telling me yesterday that he was in Vienna for the Anschluss. When there was no one else from CBS to cover the events, Murrow filled in, and the rest as they say is history. Murrow hired Shira who covered Berlin, and together they covered the Czech crisis, the crisis in Danzig and the Polish corridor. Anyway most of you know what followed. Have you ever heard some of those broadcasts? Through the static of history and the poor quality of audio feeds in those days, they still send chills down my spine as I listen to them broadcasting the first draft of history. I often wonder what it would be like if Murrow was a working journalist today. Can you imagine? Bill O’Reilly, Larry King, Keith Olberman, and Ed Murrow tonight on some cable channel. No doubt Murrow would be stunned and thrilled that technology has made it possible to broadcast live from battlefields, refugee camps, conference halls, and street corners anywhere in the world. In Murrow’s day the quality was accepted. There wasn’t any alternative and there wasn’t that much competition. NBC and the old Mutual Broadcasting System were also in their infancy, just like CBS. Today, there’s more competition than anyone can reasonably absorb. I can only speculate how he’d feel about the cacaphony coming from the broadcast nets, cable channels, radio, the Internet, and YouTube. I can’t begin to imagine what he would make of the blogosphere.

Harry Radliffe, F73, CBS Producer of 60 Minutes

The fact that an ordinary American with a cell phone, a built-in mic and a camera can record a picture or a comment that can fundamentally alter the outcome of an election would certainly take some getting used to. It’s produced a kind of whiplash journalism that I’d like to think he would find distasteful. But I think Murrow would be impressed that being courageous is now routine. When he and his colleagues broadcast that report on Joe McCarthy, when they reported on Lt. Radulovich, who the U.S. government asked to repudiate his own father, over allegations that turned out to be false, when they reported on the plight of migrant workers—that was groundbreaking stuff. The risk of repercussions for them all, Murrow in particular, was real. But Murrow withstood it. Today, reporters routinely take on everything—the President, government, big business, science, and institutions, without fear. Aggressive journalism is routine. Despite all the angst about the future, we are living in a golden age of journalism. Despite obvious flaws, the quality and quantity of good reporting has never been greater. American reporters are anxious to report the world. What’s holding them back are the economic realities of that same world. The major networks are part of large corporations focused on the bottom line. It is difficult to ask them to hemorrhage money so me and my colleagues can run around the world covering stories. Hopefully, we’ll find some way to sort out the economics and construct new business models that can finance the future.

Ralph Bunche Scholarship Fund, A Collective Fletcher Effort By Rebecca POLLARD Pierik

The extraordinary legacy of Dr. Ralph Bunche—United Nations diplomat, international peacemaker and civil rights champion—is felt the world over. Perhaps best known for negotiating the end of the first Arab-Israeli war and ushering in a new era of UN-mediated peacekeeping, in 1950, Dr. Bunche became the first African American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. The grandson of an ex-slave, Dr. Bunche endeavored to advance civil rights of African Americans, working alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and leading, with him, the historic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.

“Dr. Bunche was a brilliant statesman and scholar. He truly believed that it was possible to use mediation to bring two sides of a conflict to common ground—whether abroad or here on American soil,” (FACA). During his time at Fletcher, Smith helped establish the Ralph Bunche Society to raise awareness about the contributions and issues of minorities and people of color to the field of international relations. Still active, the society has come to serve as a model for campuses across the country. Now Smith and the FACA, in conjunction with Fletcher dean Stephen W. Bosworth, are working to further extend Dr.

Bunche’s legacy on campus through the Ralph Bunch Endowed Scholarship Fund. Fletcher will use income from the fund to support scholarships for students of color, allowing more students from diverse backgrounds to study at the School. Smith says the Bunche Fund will help counter a troubling trend. Talented students of color, he says, are being lured away from Fletcher to programs that can offer more competitive funding packages. “I go to a lot of events for prospective students of color. The question I always hear is ‘How am I going to afford Fletcher?’” explains Smith, who holds a position as a manager in information security at Deloitte and Touche. “The financial side of graduate school concerns these students, and that is playing a big role in where they choose to go.” Along with helping more students afford tuition, Smith says the Ralph Bunche Endowed Scholarship Fund will send an important message that Fletcher recognizes that a diverse student body enriches learning for all students. “This is a scholar’s program. We plan to award the Ralph Bunche Scholarship to scholars who reflect the legacy of Dr. Bunche,” he explains. “The Ralph Bunche Scholars will be connected to the critical issues of our time, and they will connect others at Fletcher to those issues, too.” Ralph Bunche Jr., F71, a key supporter of the initiative, recalls how his own time at Fletcher exposed him to a wealth of new perspectives, thanks in large part to the diversity of ideas he encountered there. “The education I received from Fletcher was top-notch. The students in my classes came from a range of backgrounds, in terms of gender, international experience, and military experience,” says Bunche Jr., now a financial and

Fl etcher Ne w s

development consultant for countries in Africa. “This really helped me to understand people, their histories, economics, and politics. “I’m very pleased to help bring that experience to students who may not have access to it otherwise.” Bunche Jr. also says the scholarship fund is a fitting tribute to his father, who held a deep commitment to education. “My father firmly believed that education had the most important function in world, allowing people from many different walks of life to come together in dialogue,” he says. Bunche Fund supporter Karen Hastie Williams, F71, remembers Dr. Bunche from her childhood. While studying at Harvard, Bunche met her father William Henry Hastie, who was a professor of law, and the two scholars became friends and collaborators. Hastie went on to become the first African-American circuit court judge. “We were in Philadelphia, and Dr. Bunche was close by in New York at the UN,” recalls Williams. “I remember the two of them would get together frequently and organize groups focused on helping African American students develop their understanding of international challenges.” Williams says her own experiences at Fletcher gave her a solid understanding of international relations that has served as a foundation for her career. An expert in public contract law, Williams served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and later represented victims of terrorist acts, from the bombings at the U.S. Embassy in Kenya to 9/11. She says the Bunche Fund can help Fletcher do an even better job preparing tomorrow’s leaders in international relations and diplomacy. “There is a need for Americans who are interested in diplomacy and foreign relations to have broad spectrum of experiences,” says Williams. “It’s ideal to have class members from all of over the world and from all backgrounds studying and working side by side.” Along with making a gift to the Ralph Bunche Endowed Scholarship Fund, Williams hosted a party in her Washington, D.C., home last fall to kick off the fundraising campaign. Fletcher alumni from 1964 to 2006 attended. “When Dean Bosworth asked me to join this effort, it was natural for me to get involved,” she says. “Everyone at the party was very enthusiastic about supporting it. I think we’ve hit upon a real need as well as a great way for alumni to give back to the School.” The Fletcher School is still actively seeking gifts to the Ralph Bunche Scholarship Fund.

NEW YORK China’s energy policy was the topic of a panel discussion, “Global Oil and Gas: A New Contender, China,” hosted by the Fletcher Club of New York in April. Bruce McKenzie Everett, F70 (retired from ExxonMobil Corporation and now adjunct professor of international business at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and adjunct associate professor of international business at the Fletcher School), Sammy Buo, F74 (director of the Africa II Division in the United Nations Department of Political Affairs), and Erping Zhang, GMAP03 (director of the Association for Asian Research in New York City), discussed the implications of China’s energy policy for the region and international policymakers and businesses. Dr. Ronnie Goldberg, chief policy officer at the U.S. Council for International Business, moderated. Tarek Zeidan, F09, was selected as the recipient of the New York club’s unpaid internship scholarship in June. The $1,500 scholarship is made possible by the generosity of club members, membership fees, and event attendance. Tarek is a Lebanese national who interned at the Al Hayat newspaper’s United Nations Bureau, covering UN events for the media outlet. In September, the board of the Fletcher Club of New York presented a lively panel discussion, “After Annapolis: Prospects for Peace.” The four panelists were: H.E. Ambassador Majed

Abdul Aziz, permanent representative of Egypt to the UN; H.E. Ambassador Riyad H. Mansour, permanent representative of the Palestine Mission to the UN; H.E. Ambassador Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, permanent representative of the State of Qatar to the UN; and Daniel Levy, senior fellow and director of both the Middle East Initiative at the New America Foundation and the Prospects for Peace Initiative at the Century Foundation. Farri Cress, F70, vice president of the Fletcher Club of New York, served as moderator. This interactive session focused on some of the promises Israel and the Palestinians undertook at Annapolis and how both sides missed many opportunities to resolve major obstacles to peace. The panelists concluded that no fundamental change is going to occur in the region before 2009 and that while Annapolis was a great idea, it was too little, too late.

This is not to score points with some dreaded “elite” but because no complex situation—be it Iraq, Afghanistan, or Haiti—can be approached, let alone solved, with anything less.”

A LASTING LEGACY How do alumni who feel indebted to a former professor express their enduring appreciation for the guidance provided within the classroom? In a generous gesture, they dedicate the actual classroom in which so much wisdom was passed down to the name of that same professor. On Monday, September 22, the Fletcher Community gathered to dedicate one of its most oft-used classrooms to a former professor who made a lasting mark on so many of his students. A beloved professor of international politics during his two-decade tenure at The Fletcher School from 1967–87, Dr. Uri Ra’anan also served as director of the International Security Studies Program and chair of the Curriculum Committee. A gift from Dr. Ra’anan’s former students at Fletcher—made in anonymity—has enabled the naming of Cabot 205 in his honor. His former students, along with former Fletcher colleagues professors Richard Shultz and Robert Pfaltzgraff, joined the Fletcher Community in welcoming Ra’anan back to the campus twenty years after his tenure at Tufts. Both Shultz and Pfaltzgraff offered their thanks to Professor Ra’anan for guiding their careers and setting a high standard of excellence in teaching. Cabot 205 served as the location for many of Professor Ra’anan’s classes, wherein his ability to draw detailed regionalized maps of the world and his passion for scholarship left an indelible mark on those who taught alongside him and attended his lectures.

Uri Ra’anan

Now director of the Institute for the Study of Conflict, Ideology and Policy at Boston University and an associate of the Davis Center at Harvard University, Ra’anan has authored, co-authored, edited and co-edited more than twenty-five books, and contributed to nearly twenty others. He is an expert on Soviet affairs. While his teaching days at Fletcher are long behind him, his legacy as a professor committed to both his students and his research will last, and Ra’anan’s name will continue to be spoken within the Fletcher Community and by those who remain forever grateful for his teachings.

Paul Martin

On August 18th, Dean Stephen W. Bosworth bestowed the prestigious Dean’s Medal upon Paul Martin, the former Prime Minister of Canada, at an event that took place at The Rideau Club in Ottawa. The award acknowledged among his many accomplishments, Martin’s work on the L20, a forum of international leaders convened to address the world’s most pressing issues. The L20 concept has become an essential teaching tool used by the last six GMAP sessions.

I have understood that Roman emperors had someone behind their chairs, whispering in their ears, “You are only mortal.” I think we have had the modern equivalent of this phrase in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, we have made mistakes and it is time to reassert a renewed American diplomacy based on realism, capacity matched to actions, and some humility after we have relieved the helmsman Mr. Magoo of his duties. I believe the rest of the world is waiting. I am sorry that my generation has left all of you an America not as the shining city on a hill in a prosperous and democratic world, but in a dangerous, competitive, and changing environment, with global warming, poverty, and terrorism high on the agenda. It is over to you to make it better. —Phyllis E. Oakley, F57, recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award, speaking at Fletcher’s convocation in September 2008. Fall/Winter 2008 FLETCHER NEWS 15

Fletcher’s 75th Anniversary Gala

On October 11th 2008, the Great Hall of the Jefferson Building in the Library of Congress was the setting for an event that marked the climax of what had involved more than a year’s worth of programming—the 75th anniversary of the founding of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. More than 650 members of the extended Fletcher Community walked the exhibits halls (“Exploring the Americas” and “Thomas Jefferson’s Library”), enjoyed fine cheeses, fruits and desserts, and danced to the rhythms of a 12-piece band. An evening that began with smiles, conversation and a lavish five-course dinner transitioned quickly to recognitions of achievement, great stories of past experiences and shared hope for the future.

Dr. Peter Ackerman, F69, Chairman of Fletcher’s Board of Overseers and Gala Chair, welcomed guests and discussed the school’s many new challenges and opportunities. Ackerman emphasized the need in today’s world for Fletcher’s unique offering, and spoke to the importance of new initiatives such as the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP), the Institute for Human Security and the School’s most recent additions: the Master of International Business and Master of Laws in International Law degrees, and the Center for Emerging Market Enterprises. The podium was then turned over to Dean Stephen W. Bosworth, who bestowed the Dean’s Medal upon Ambassador

Wolfgang Ischinger, F73, for his “unique ability to create opportunities out of crises and to address the world’s most pressing issues.” Ambassador Ischinger’s extensive career of service to Germany and the international community includes positions in Washington, DC, Paris as well as several senior positions in the German Foreign Office where he went on to serve as Deputy Foreign Minister, the nation’s highest civil service post.

honor was bestowed upon Conley Tyler for her professional achievement in conflict resolution and for her role as an emerging leader in the global community.

Additionally, Melissa Conley Tyler, F96, National Executive Director of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, was named the recipient of the Fletcher Alumni Association of Washington, DC’s Young Alumni Award for 2008. This

“…never before has our interdependent world needed leaders prepared by Fletcher more than it does now.” – Dean Stephen W. Bosworth

As the evening continued into the twilight hours, guests mingled—continuing to strengthen the “Fletcher Connection”—and discussed the significance of the day. Though 75 years have past since the doors to The Fletcher School first opened, the need for its vision is even greater today.

MIGUEL MONTERRUBIO, GMAP 04 The nation of México lost a champion of diplomacy and The Fletcher School lost a dedicated alumnus on the evening of November 4, 2008. A plane carrying Miguel Monterrubio Cubas, GMAP 04, and eight other individuals, including Interior Minister and México’s second-most powerful government official, Juan Camilo Mourino, crashed into the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood in México City. The plane was minutes from touching down at the capital city’s Benito Juárez International Airport when it fell into rush-hour traffic. Monterrubio had recently taken on the role of Mourino’s press secretary after serving as the spokesperson for México’s President, Felipe Calderon. After graduating from the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP) in 2004, Miguel became a frequent collaborator and supporter of his alma mater, hosting various events in México City for The Fletcher School and Tufts University, including a “Tufts in the World” series and numerous functions in which he opened his home to prospective students, alumni and the greater Tufts community. His dedication to the GMAP program, along with that of Aldo Aldama Breton, GMAP 02, has proven invaluable to the continuing relationship between Fletcher and the Mexican Foreign Ministry. Since


presenting Miguel as its first yearly candidate for the GMAP program, the Ministry has since sent several students to the program. Miguel also acted as “unofficial host” of the GMAP residency program in México in 2004. “He was a great friend and colleague, full of life, always trying to develop new ideas…joyful,” added Vanessa Zárate Castillo, GMAP 06, a fellow member of the Mexican Foreign Service. “He was someone that enjoyed life, always surrounded by friends, always ready to listen and help. He was an optimist.” Monterrubio was a member of Tufts University’s International Board of Overseers, in addition to active participation on The Fletcher School’s Latin America Advisory Group, wherein he offered strategic guidance on affairs related to the field of communications, Latin America and his home country of México. “Miguel was a special person—a dedicated and exceptional diplomat, family man and friend,” noted Senior Associate Dean and Director of GMAP, Deborah Nutter. “He believed deeply in Mexico and its future. He was loved by his classmates, his faculty and Fletcher’s staff. One loved to be in his presence, for he was optimistic and caring. We, and the world, will miss him greatly, as he was destined for great things.” Before serving as Press Secretary for Interior Minister Mourino and President Calderon, Monterrubio held numerous posts in the Mexican Foreign Service, including Press Secretary for the Mexican Embassies in Italy, the UK, and the United States. He also held positions at the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Advisor to the Deputy Foreign Secretary; Deputy Director and Head of the Department of Information, North American Desk; and analyst. In addition to his Fletcher degree, Miguel is a graduate of Universidad Iberoamericana, Instituto Matías Romero de Estudios Diplomaticos and Accademia Nazionale della Comunicazione.

His first wife, Sarah Martin Wahl, whom he married in Tsingtao, died in 1978. He remarried in 1981, and his second wife, Tania Cosman Wahl, died in 2006. His survivors include his three children, Martin Wahl of Corte Madera, California, Russell Wahl of Pocatello, Idaho, and Harriet Wahl Cowper of Tucson, Arizona; and six grandchildren. He is also survived by four stepchildren and two step grandchildren. DOUGLAS C. WILSON, F64, died on 5 May 2008 at his home in Amherst,

Massachusetts, at the age of 67. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on 18 December 1940, and grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where he attended University School before his studies at Amherst College. He graduated from Amherst with honors in 1962 and earned a master’s degree from The Fletcher School before beginning his career as a reporter with the Providence Journal in the Pawtucket and Newport bureaus. He was also public information specialist in Rhode Island’s Army National Guard from 1962–1968. In 1968, he was a Congressional Fellow of the American Political Science Association, working as a staff member in the offices of Senator Frank Church (D-ID) and Representative John Tunney (C-CA). He then worked as a reporter in the Providence Journal’s Washington bureau, where he covered Capitol Hill and presidential politics. He worked for thirteen years for the paper, until he joined Amherst College’s administration in 1975. On 7 August 1974, he broke the story of President Richard Nixon’s decision to resign as president, a story for which he won the Merriman Smith Memorial Award from The White House Correspondents’ Association. Mr. Wilson then served in a variety of functions at Amherst College for the next twenty-seven years, including as public affairs officer and editor. He also edited many college publications including an anthology of essays on the college’s history. He served as a member and chair of Amherst’s town conservation commission and the Western Massachusetts Broadcasting Council. Mr. Wilson is survived by his wife, newspaper writer and columnist Cheryl Wilson and three children, Jay Wilson of Bronxville, New York, and Emily Wilson and Samuel Wilson of Brooklyn, New York; his older brother William Wilson of Georgetown, Colorado; and his twin brother, Swami Anantananda of South Fallsburg, New York. He is also survived by a nephew, Gordon Wilson of San Francisco, California, and a niece, Ellen Wilson of Carrboro, North Carolina.

”I feel privileged to be a part of the Fletcher community. My Fletcher experiences have made me more of a global citizen. I give back so that others may have the same opportunity.” Bonnie Clendenning, F86, has had many associations with The Fletcher School through the years—as employee, student, alumna, Fletcher Fund supporter and volunteer, Austin B. Fletcher Society member, and Tufts Alumni Council member—just to name a few. Bonnie has put her Fletcher degree, along with her law degree and certified financial planner skills, to work, resulting in a distinguished record of leadership in the nonprofit sector. She currently serves as president of the School for Field Studies in Salem, Massachusetts, which teaches environmental sustainability, social justice, and economic development through field-based international education. Prior to this, she was executive director of the Archaeological Institute of America; vice president and COO of the Education Alliance in Framingham, Massachusetts; and head of institutional advancement for Radcliffe College. She also has worked for the World Federation of Friends of Museums in Brussels and the International Council of Museums/UNESCO in Paris. Recently, Bonnie designated The Fletcher School as a remainder beneficiary of her IRA because, as she says, “It is an easy and significant way to make a gift. You don’t need an attorney. All you have to do is download the form and fill it out. Plus, it can lead to substantial tax savings. Everyone can provide for Fletcher with this type of gift.” She points out, “Giving to Fletcher through your estate plans will result in important future resources for the school, so that it may continue its vital global mission.”

When she was on staff at The Fletcher School, Bonnie gathered the original collection of flags that now hangs in the Hall of Flags in the Cabot Intercultural Center.

DONORS TO THE FLETCHER FUND FISCAL YEAR 2008 (1 JULY 2007–30 JUNE 2008) Led by Dorothy Meadow Sobol, F66, The Fletcher Fund raised $1,363,303, marking a remarkable fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth. Fletcher Fund gifts also count toward the School’s $100 million Beyond Boundaries campaign goal. The almost 1,900 contributions to the Fund from alumni, parents, and friends assist Fletcher in providing its students a world-class education. Specifically, last year these gifts helped the School increase its average financial aid package to over $10,000, offer almost 100 students summer stipends for internship support, and provide much-needed support for faculty so they could pursue top quality research and continue to excel in the classroom. FLETCHER FUND NAMED TERM SCHOLARS Financial aid is the School’s top campaign priority. With a gift of at least $25,000 per year (two- or four-year commitment), alumni, parents, and friends can help meet this need by creating a named, term scholarship. John P.

Also noteworthy was the alumni participation rate, which remained at 27%. A recent review revealed that Fletcher ranks number one in annual fund participation among its peer graduate schools of international affairs. This is certainly a point of pride for Fletcher and serves as further motivation to grow this number and retain this top spot.

Thanks to all those who placed Fletcher among their philanthropic priorities this year. Every year, every gift to Fletcher ensures that the School can continue to offer its students outstanding educational opportunities in a world class facility. Your gift helped to educate tomorrow’s global leaders, something Fletcher has done with distinction for 75 years. Further, a recent review revealed that Fletcher, with 27% alumni participation, ranks number one in annual fund participation among our peer graduate schools of international affairs! As a donor, your consistent annual support will be essential in our ability to continue to grow this number and maintain this impressive accomplishment. Your philanthropic commitment to Fletcher in 2007-2008 also helped the School as it strives to reach its $100 million goal in the Beyond Boundaries comprehensive campaign. Again, thank you; your support of Fletcher is deeply appreciated. We hope we can count on you this year and in the years to come.
