Convocation

  • David McMillen

    Director of Congressional Relations at the National Archives discusses the United States Census

    “Revolution is in the Air” was the title of David McMillen’s convocation address, advertised across campus on striking posters featuring a black silhouette of the Statue of Liberty against a bold red-striped background. As students drifted into the Chapel last Friday to the sounds of the Beatles’ “Revolution,” they could be excused for wondering if this wasn’t a rather dramatic way to dress up a talk on a prosaic topic: that dry decennial exercise in statistics known as the U.S. Census.
