Wikimedia CommonsFormer classmates of Hillary Rodham Clinton LAW ’73 are working with the Law School’s development office to create a fund in Clinton’s honor, a year and a half after the former secretary of state’s historic defeat in the 2016 presidential election.Rosalind Fink LAW ’72 — a former classmate of Clinton who is helping spearhead the new Hillary Rodham Clinton Fund for the Public Interest — said she expects two recent Yale graduates doing “public interest work” to receive year-long fellowships from the fund next fall, once the Law School formally announces its creation.Although the development of the fund remains at an early stage, Fink said the project’s ultimate goal is to raise money for the Law School to create more legal clinics, which give law students hands-on experience working with clients on complex issues like immigration.

Veronica Guerrero LAW ’20 noted that Clinton is one of the school’s most famous alumni. And while she is a political figure, Guerrero said, the Law School should honor Clinton as someone who has used her law degree to help the country. She added that having a fund named for Clinton is exciting given that “law tends to honor a lot more men.”

Clinton is slated to give this year’s Class Day speech in May.

Institute to recognize longtime public servant as ‘advocate of American leadership’

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study announced today that former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the prestigious Radcliffe Medal on May 25 during Harvard’s Commencement week.

Awarded on Radcliffe Day, the annual gathering to celebrate the institute’s commitment to excellence and inquiry, the medal honors individuals whose lives and work have had a transformative impact on society.

Radcliffe Dean Lizabeth Cohen called Clinton a “champion for human rights” and for the welfare of all, a “skilled legislator,” and “an advocate of American leadership to create a world in which states live up to their responsibilities.”

A former first lady, Clinton served as a U.S. senator from New York from 2001 to 2009 before taking over as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. She was the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in 2016, the first woman candidate for that office from a major political party.

“Hillary Clinton’s life and career are an inspiration to people around the world,” said Cohen, who is also the Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies in Harvard’s Department of History. “We commend Secretary Clinton for her accomplishments in the public sphere as a champion for human rights and the welfare of all, as a skilled legislator, and as an advocate of American leadership to create a world in which states — to quote Secretary Clinton — ‘have clear incentives to cooperate and live up to their responsibilities, as well as strong disincentives to … sow discord and division.’ We salute her commitment to a life of public service and the resilience it takes to live and work in the public eye.”

“Whether in Arkansas, Washington, D.C., New York state, or traveling around the globe as secretary of state,” Cohen said, “Secretary Clinton has provided a model of what it takes to transform society, often under scrutiny: tireless effort, toughness amid the political fray, and an enduring capacity to envision a better future.”

Hillary was honored last night at the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston’s annual gala. Congratulations, Mme. Secretary!

 


Hillary Clinton took a break last night from her book tour about her loss in the presidential election to promote the value of “kindness” and mentorship to children.

Before an audience of about 500 at the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston’s annual gala at the Museum of Fine Arts, Clinton said the reason she is so devoted to doing what she can on behalf of children, particularly those who are vulnerable, is because of her mother.

Clinton has spent much of the past few months on the road around the nation touting her book, “What Happened,” blaming her 2016 presidential loss on Russian interference, and denouncing President Trump. She sounded a different note at last night’s event.

Yonkers Daily Voice serves Yonkers, NY

Westchester resident and 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attracted a record crowd at The Business Council of Westchester’s  (BCW) Annual Fall Dinner held Monday, Nov. 20 at The Hilton Westchester with overflow tables that spilled out into the hallway.

The former first lady, secretary of state and U.S. senator from New York was at the Rye Brook hotel to receive the Westchester Global Leadership Laureate Award.

She was greeted — after a speech by BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon — with a standing ovation, rousing applause, and even a “We love you Hillary” shouted from a group in the back of the room.

After a brief mention about how crazy the electon was — she drew laughter from the audience when she referenced the recent Westchester county executive race between Democrat George Latimer and two-term Repulican Rob Astorino (as opposed to her own) — she spoke about lessons learned from the 2016 Presidential campaign.

“People often ask me, since the election, how I am,” said Clinton. “And I say, as a person, I’m good. But as an American, I’m concerned.”
