With the presidential election coming up, national politics is on most minds. This fall Dartmouth's Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Endowment will present prominent speakers on the subject, both before and after the election.

Each year, the Endowment brings noted individuals to campus as Montgomery Fellows to meet with students and faculty members and to deliver public lectures. The 2004 theme of the series is "Presidential Politics" and features distinguished authors and scholars on the complex landscape of political leadership.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13, former New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winner Russell Baker will serve up a good helping of humor with his observations on "The Decline and Fall of Politics and Practically Everything Else," when he arrives as a Montgomery Fellow. Baker has been the host of "Masterpiece Theatre" since 1992. He will speak at 4:30 p.m. in The Moore Theater, Hopkins Center.

On Tuesday, Nov. 9, David Shribman, Executive Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, will offer a special post-election analysis. Shribman, a former Dartmouth trustee, graduated from the College in 1976. A syndicated columnist known for the depth and accuracy of his perceptions about the workings of the White House, he was for many years the Washington, D.C., bureau chief for The Boston Globe. Shribman will speak at 4:30 p.m. in Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall.
