Speaking on the subject "The League and Its Present Crisis," the Honorable Carl Joachim Hambro will speak tonight at 8 o'clock in the New Lecture Hall.
The meeting, sponsored by the Dowse Institute, brings to Harvard the principal Norwegian Delegate to the League of Nations. The present President of the Norwegian Parliament, Hambro is a distinguished figure in the world of international relations. He was one of the originators of the present organization of the League, and is considered an expert on the technical subject of League procedure.
As President of the Parliament of Norway, Hambro ranks as the first officer of the Kingdom under the King, and was one of the principal members of the Commission which drafted the treaty setting the long-standing dispute with Denmark over Greenland. In 1926 he became head of his country's delegation to the League and in 1930 he was elected to the League's executive committee. Previous to his entrance into Parliament, Hambro was a professor, editor, and author.
The Dowse Institute, sponsoring the meeting, is a lecture fund, held by trustees and unconnected with the University.
