Gennadius Library honors Peter Brown June 17, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Greece News.

Every year in June, the Gennadius Library honors someone whose work has made a contribution to Greek civilization.

This year, on June 11, the person honored was Peter Brown, who is Philip and Beulah Rollins professor of history at Princeton University.

Professor Angeliki Laiou of Harvard gave the introduction and Brown gave a speech on “The Sense of Space and Time.” A dinner followed in the grounds of the library. Among the leading lights at the event was former US Ambassador to Athens, now Undersecretary of State, Nicholas Burns, who went from table to table greeting old friends.
