American Bar Association President to Speak in Houston
 
Houston, TX – American Bar Association President Dennis W. Archer will speak at Holocaust Museum Houston on Monday, June 14, 2004 at 7:00 p.m. The program, part of the museum’s Annual Jaworski Lecture Series, is underwritten by Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. and is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.

Archer, former mayor of Detroit and Michigan Supreme Court Justice, is the first African American president of the American Bar Association. His distinguished career also includes practice as a trial lawyer and tenures teaching at the Detroit College of Law and Wayne State University Law School.

The Jaworski Lecture Series was established at Holocaust Museum Houston by the law firm Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. to honor one of its name partners, Colonel Leon Jaworski. Notes Linda Addison, Fulbright & Jaworski senior partner and executive committee member, “Col. Jaworksi was known for many great professional achievements, but one of his finest hours was his tenure as chief of the War Crimes Trial Section in the American Zone of Occupation, where he helped to reset the world’s moral compass and point the way to preventing future horrors against humanity.”

Holocaust Museum Houston promotes awareness and educates the public of the dangers of prejudice, hatred and violence against the backdrop of the Holocaust by fostering remembrance, understanding and education. The museum is free and open to the public and is located in Houston’s Museum District at 5401 Caroline Street, Houston, TX 77004. Its Internet address is http://www.hmh.org. The Jaworski program will take place in the Josef and Edith Mincberg Gallery in the museum’s Morgan Family Center.
