Hoover-Wallace Dinner Honoring Governor Terry Branstad and Secretary Tom Vilsack

In 2012, Ambassador Quinn hosted the World Food Prize Hoover-Wallace Dinner, at which Governor Terry Branstad and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack were honored for their bipartisan efforts to promote US-China relations. World Food Prize Chairman John Ruan III and Janis Ruan joined in the presentation of the award. Also in attendance were Congressman Tom Latham (R) and Leonard Boswell (D), adding to the bipartisan nature of the evening. Ambassador Quinn created the Hoover-Wallace Dinner in 2005 as a way to bring Iowans together across party lines and to honor particular individuals for their humanitarian achievements recalling similar great achievements by President Herbert Hoover and Vice President Henry A. Wallace.
