Holden to be Convocation speaker

By Katherine Jackson

Matthew Holden Jr., the Doherty Charitable Foundation Professor of Gov- ernment and Foreign Affairs at U.Va. and a leading authority on public policy and American government, will deliver U.Va.'s 1999 Fall Convocation address Oct. 22 at 2 p.m.

The annual Lawn ceremony, which officially opens Family Weekend, will honor undergraduate students who have earned grade-point averages of 3.4 or higher during their first two years at U.Va.

The Thomas Jefferson Award, the University's highest honor, also will be presented. The event is open to the public.

Family Weekend also includes the University Forum, a public address by President John T. Casteen III, followed by a question-and-answer session with U.Va. administrators. The forum will take place Oct. 23 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in Old Cabell Hall Auditorium.

On the U.Va. faculty since 1981, Holden is the editor of National Political Science Review and former president of the American Political Science Association. Among his publications, Continuity and Disruption: Essays in Public Administration won the National Conference of Black Political Scientists Outstanding Book Award.

He has written numerous articles on a variety of topics, including the regulation of the electric utilities industry, politics and law, urban politics and ethnicity and race relations. He served on the U.S. Department of Energy's Task Force on Electric System Reliability in 1997-1998.

Holden received his bachelor's degree from Roosevelt University and his master'and doctoral degrees in political science from Northwestern University.
