DURHAM, N.H. -- Due to a scheduling conflict, a guest lecture with Sarah Meiklejohn Terry planned for Friday, April 7, at the University of New Hampshire, has been canceled. Terry was the final speaker in the 1999-2000 New Hampshire International Seminar Series.

The center has added another guest speaker to its agenda, however. H. E. Ernesto Maceda, Philippine Ambassador to the United States, will speak on Friday, March 31, at 3:30 p.m., in the Memorial Union Building, Room 334. His talk, titled "One Hundred Years of Philippine Independence, 1898-1998," is free and open to the public.

Macedažs legislative experience is extensive. He served in the Philippine Senate for three terms during three decades and is a former senate president. As ambassador, Maceda has held five cabinet level positions, most recently as Minister of Natural Resources in 1986. In 1999, he co-chaired the Philippine delegation to the much publicized World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle.

Maceda earned his Bachelor of Laws degree from Ateneo de Manila and was a Harvard International Legal Studies Fellow. He also taught courses in constitutional law and government at Maryknoll College.
