Former Assembly Speaker and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown gave the Dr. Joseph L. White lecture on January 19, 2012. He spoke on “California and Our Nation” as part of the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium. The first time Willie Brown spoke on the UCI campus was probably in 1973 when he was the Assemblyman from San Francisco’s 18th District and Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. The poster publicizing his speech on November 28, 1973 is below, and the article about his talk from the New U. Always a powerful, dynamic and direct speaker, Willie Brown’s speeches at both events were very well received.

In the 1970s a variety of politicians visited the UCI campus to engage students on the issues of the day. A sample of posters for those events is below:
