Ms. Stevens was in Beirut translating for Arab journalists when she was killed in the bombing. Her family, friends, fellow students, and professors created the award and lecture to honor her memory and spirit. The purpose of the lecture is to break down stereotyping between Arabs and Americans as well as to promote understanding and tolerance.
Speakers will include President Emeritus Martin Meyerson; Professors Michael Zuckerman, Henry Teune, and Harold Bershady; a former graduate student, Howard Schneiderman, and former undergraduate Martin Muoto; Former Football Coach Harry Gamble; and the Rev. John Scott, who was rector of St. Mary's Church for many of the years in which Dr. Baltzell served on the faculty.
Dr. Baltzell died on August 17 at the age of 80 (see Almanac September 3). Contributions in his memory may be made to the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania for the E. Digby Baltzell Sociology Fund, School of Arts and Sciences, External Affairs Office, 3440 Market St., Suite 300, Philadelphia, PA 19104-3325.
