From the Depression to the Second World War: The Memoirs of two American Governors of Puerto Rico The speaker edited the memoirs of two American governors of Puerto Rico, William D. Leahy (1939-1940) and Rexford G. Tugwell (1941-1946), and published a study on the political transition during the late thirties in Puerto Rico, Strategy as Politics. The conference will be based on this trilogy of books and focused on the transformations that occurred during this period, both in the dynamics of internal politics and in Puerto Rico’s relation with the United States.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
