A Retrospective of Governor Ray's Humanitarian Leadership

Ambassador Quinn joined with former Iowa Governor Robert D. Ray to give a lecture at the Iowa History Center of Simpson College. The topic was Governor Ray's humanitarian leadership on behalf of refugees in 1979-1980. During that time, the Governor had been the first official anywhere in the world to say he would accept the "Boat People" refugees who were escaping from Vietnam, as well as establishing the Iowa SHARES program to rush food and medicine to starving Cambodian victims to genocide in Thailand. Ambassador Quinn was the Governor's Chief Advisor and collaborator in both of these efforts.
