Britain's Harold Macmillan to Meet with President Eisenhower the Day After Visiting DePauw
March 14, 1958
March 14, 1958, Greencastle, Ind. — "President Eisenhower and Britain's Prime Minister Macmillan have agreed to review world problems including prospects for a summit meeting, at a two-day White House conference starting June 9," reports the Associated Press today. "The White House said Macmillan had informed Eisenhower he will deliver the commencement address at DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., June 8. Macmillan's mother was American-born. [White House Press Secretary James C.] Hagerty said he had been informed that the prime minister's grandfather was DePauw University's first medical graduate."
The text points out, "The Eisenhower-Macmillan meeting would be a follow-up to the conference the two men held last October when they appealed for greater cooperation among free nations to meet Russia's challenge."
The story appears in newspapers across the nation, including the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Washington.
The Right Honorable Harold Macmillan will provide the keynote address at DePauw University's 119th commencement exercises on Sunday, June 8. The University will confer an honorary Doctor of Laws degree on the prime minister preceding his address to approximately 390 graduating seniors at Blackstock Stadium. Learn more in this article.Back
