An Evening with Walter Mondale - Reflections on 1968 & 2018
St. Paul, MN 55102
Walter Mondale has served in many roles during his storied career, including as an eyewitness to the tumult of 1968, the year he helped broker passage of the landmark Fair Housing Act and co-chaired Hubert Humphrey's presidential campaign.
Join the former vice president in conversation with Professor Larry Jacobs of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, as he reflects on our country 50 years later and shares his perspective on the current social and political upheaval facing our nation and the world today.
Mondale was born and raised in Ceylon, Minn. As a member of the Minnesota DFL and the national Democratic Party, he served as state attorney general, a U.S. senator, ambassador to Japan, and as vice president to Jimmy Carter.
Mondale continues to pursue an active career as senior counsel at Dorsey & Whitney; as a director on several nonprofit and corporate boards; as chair of the Mansfield Foundation Board's International Advisory Board; and as a public affairs lecturer and educator, particularly through the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
Professor Larry Jacobs is the Walter F. and Joan Mondale Chair for Political Studies and director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the political science department at the University of Minnesota.
