Albright to deliver Wellesley commencement

Posted by Erica Noonan, Globe West March 9, 2007 02:57 PM


Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright will deliver Wellesley College's 2007 commencement address on June 1, the college announced today.

Albright, who graduated from Wellesley in 1959, served as the nation's first female secretary of state from 1997 to 2001.

Albright's last campus appearance was in 2001, when she and former First Lady Hillary Clinton, a 1969 Wellesley alum, delivered the keynote speech for the college's 125th anniversary.
