Today is a great day to remember that Lou Frey's papers are deposited in the UCF Libraries' Special Collections and Archives. A finding aid is available at http://library.ucf.edu/SpecialCollections/FindingAids/Frey.xml.

So why today?

UCF's Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government 2009 Spring Symposium is Wednesday, April 15, starting at 9:30 a.m. in the Student Union Pegasus Ballroom and continuing throughout the day. The Symposium's topic is The First 100 Days: Policies and Approaches for the New Administration. A variety of speakers and panelists will address such issues as "Economic Policy and the Future," "Security Policy and President Obama," and "The President and the Congress and the Bureaucracy." A complete schedule of events is available at http://loufrey.cos.ucf.edu/include/files/programs/symposium/2009_spring/program.pdf.

The Institute's symposia are some of the best public forums held on our campus.
