Journalist Clarence Page will give lecture April 27

STANFORD -- Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Clarence Page will give the inaugural Charles F. Riddell Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, in Kresge Auditorium, Stanford Law School. The talk is titled "Is the Public Informed about Urban America?"

Page, a syndicated columnist and editorial board member at the Chicago Tribune, received the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for commentary. Now based in Washington, D.C., Page appears as an occasional essayist on National Public Radio and the "MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour." He is a regular panelist on Black Entertainment Television's "Lead Story" and an occasional guest panelist on "The McLaughlin Group."

Page's public lecture will be the cornerstone of a day's activities in Residential Education at Stanford. Page was invited by Jeremy Cohen, associate professor of communication, and will be hosted by Lantana House, the community service focus residence, where Cohen and Catherine Jordan are resident fellows. He will meet with Lantana students and others at an afternoon reception and then will join them for dinner. After the lecture, Page will hold a follow-up dialogue with students in Ujamaa, the African American theme house.

The gift of Richard (Stanford class of 1938) and Dolores Riddell, which eventually will bring three visitors a year to the Stanford campus, is designed to foster cooperative efforts between Residential Education, which administers it, and other sponsors such as the Haas Center for Public Service, student organizations, academic departments and professional schools.
