Driggs Memorial Lecture at SUU Convocations on Wednesday, March 23 at Noon in the SUU Gilbert Great Hall, a SUU Founders Day Celebration. The event is free and open to the general public.

Ken Adelman has created his entire life around politics and foreign policy. He has worked in the President Ford and President Reagan Administration. Under the Ford Administration, he was an Assistant to the United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield. He became a member of the United States Defense Policy Board soon after.

Adelman served as the deputy U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. for more than two years. He used this experience to become the Director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency under the Reagan Administration.

Since serving under Reagan, Adelman has created a reputation for himself as a neo-conservative and an engaging speaker. He wrote Reagan at Reykjavik: Forty-Eight That Ended the Cold War, a first hand account of the Reagan-Gorbachev summit in Iceland. The Ambassador believes that President Ronald Reagan taught him a number of things about politics and foreign policy and wants to share those lessons with the public.
