In Memoriam: Kathryn W. Davis, DHL HON 2007

May 16, 2013  |  PRESS RELEASES

Dear Friends,

The Institute of World Politics has lost one of its most outstanding honorary graduates, Kathryn Wasserman Davis (Doctorate of Laws Honoris Causa 2007). No one was more devoted to world peace.

At 106 years, she continued not only to be aware of efforts to promote world peace but to be an active participant in the quest for peace in the world. At 100, she founded an initiative for world peace which continues. Mrs. Davis was a great friend of the Institute whom we will always remember.

R.I.P.

Sincerely,

The Board of Trustees, Faculty, and Staff of The Institute of World Politics
Owen T. Smith, Chairman, John Lenczowski, President
