White House Requests Transcript of Speech Delivered at AHI Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Convention for President's Visit to Greece

On November 5, 1999 the White House contacted the Capitol Hill Historical Society to request a transcript of the speech delivered by the Hon. Clarence J. Brown, CEO U.S. Capitol Historical Society, former Congressman from Ohio, at the American Hellenic Institute Twenty-Fifth Annual Convention held in Washington DC from October 8-11, 1999.

Mr. Brown's speech referred to the vital contributions of ancient Greece to modern democratic thinking and to the American constitution and governance. His speech is to be used for briefing purposes for President Clinton's forthcoming visit to Greece and for possible incorporation into remarks to be delivered by the President during his visit.

The Capitol Hill Society is forwarding a transcript to the White House.
