History Alumnus John Christopher Stevens ’85 Mourned

The Department of History is deeply saddened to learn this morning of the death of one of our alumni, Ambassador John Christopher Stevens ’85, in an attack on the United States consulate in Libya.  The life of Ambassador Stevens represents everything we hope for in our students.  He majored in history to learn about the world, and then he used that knowledge to make the world a better place.  We are proud of his career, his death is a tragedy, and we mourn his passing.
