On January 22 the Commission’s American Studies Circle gathered to hear Dr. Augustus R.

Dr. Norton, who spoke to the Circle’s largest gathering to date, is in Egypt under the auspices of the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia Research (MESA) Program. The Circle, whose January meeting was organized by Fulbright alumnus Dr. Osama Madany of Menoufia University, continues successfully to serve as a forum for exchange among the Commission’s American studies alumni and contacts.
