Subject: Southern hospitality Oct. 18

Is there an ADS member who would like to represent ADS at the inauguration of

Clinton Bristow Jr. as the 16th president of Alcorn State University in

Lorman, Mississippi? It's very soon: Friday Oct 18 at 1 p.m.

There's a luncheon before, a reception after; and on Saturday evening the

19th an Inaugural Dinner and Ball.

I post this so late because the invitation itself just arrived. To be

included, we'd have to make up for their lateness by acting very promptly. So

if you would enjoy this opportunity for collegiality, please let me know

immediately. (Just send a message directly to me at AAllan[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]

(ADS does not have the resources to pay expenses, so you'd be donating

money as well as time. In return you'd get a chance to meet all sorts of

other members of the Greater Academic Community; and you would be invited to

write a very short memoir for the ADS newsletter.)

Thanks - Allan Metcalf
