Patricia A. King, the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law, Medicine, Ethics, and Public Policy at Georgetown Law Center, plans to step down from the Harvard Corporation at the end of December, the University announced today.A 1969 alumna of Harvard Law School who has served on the Georgetown faculty for nearly four decades, King is a noted expert in legal and ethical aspects of biomedical science, with broad experience at the intersection of scholarship and public policy.“It’s been a great privilege to serve on the Corporation these past seven years and to work with valued colleagues in helping to guide a university that means so much to the world,” said King. “They have been eventful years, including a leadership transition, a worldwide financial crisis, the rise of globalization and new technologies, and a rapidly changing landscape for all of higher education. I’m especially pleased to have played a part in the governance reforms that we adopted in 2010 and that I believe will strengthen the Corporation and the University for decades to come. While I regret having to bring my service to a close for family reasons, I will look back on these years with a sense of deep appreciation, and with admiration for the people who make Harvard so extraordinary.”“Pat King has been a remarkably thoughtful and incisive Corporation colleague, always focused on the institution’s best interests and how it can challenge itself to do better,” said Robert D. Reischauer, the Corporation’s senior fellow and president emeritus of the Urban Institute. “We will all miss working with her, and Harvard will miss her wisdom.”A fellow of Harvard College since March 2006, King has served on the Corporation Committee on Finance, the Corporation Committee on Shareholder Responsibility (which she has chaired since last year), and the Advisory Committee on Honorary Degrees.“I have admired Pat King since I first met her, and I’m very grateful for all she has done to support me personally and to help Harvard advance institutionally,” said President Drew Faust. “She has a clear moral compass, a penetrating view of what matters most to Harvard and higher education, and a wonderfully probing, firm, and yet gracious and generous way about her that has contributed invaluably to the Corporation’s work.”King joined the Georgetown law faculty in 1974, and has also served since 1990 as an adjunct professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Her scholarship and teaching range across law, medicine, ethics, and public policy. Her publications address such topics as race and bioethics, ethical and policy dimensions of stem cell research, and the ethics of experimentation involving human subjects.A longtime trustee of her undergraduate alma mater, Wheaton College (Mass.), King chaired the Wheaton board from 2000 to 2005. Over the years, she also served as vice chair of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, vice chair of the Russell Sage Foundation, a member of the Council of the Institute of Medicine, and a member of the advisory committee to the director of the National Institutes of Health.Early in her career, King was a lawyer in the federal government, serving as special assistant to the chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, deputy director of the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW), and deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Division of the Department of Justice.King is a member of the American Law Institute and the Institute of Medicine and a fellow of the Hastings Center. Her work in bioethics has included service on the HEW’s Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee, the President’s Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research, the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, and the Ethics, Legal, and Social Issues Working Group of the Human Genome ProjectKing and her husband, Roger Wilkins, the Clarence J. Robinson Professor of History and American Culture Emeritus at George Mason University, live in Washington, D.C.The Harvard Corporation, formally known as the President and Fellows of Harvard College, is Harvard’s principal fiduciary governing board and the smaller of Harvard’s two boards, the other being the Board of Overseers.Nominations and advice regarding future Corporation appointments may be sent, in confidence, to [email protected]
In the farthest southwest fingers of the Jefferson National Forest is a slice of Virginia that is too often overlooked. Trails climb through the forests and spill into a wide-open high-elevation frontier, strewn with giant boulders and pierced by rugged, rocky crags. Harsh winds carve through the moraines and sweep through the fields. Wild ponies roam the bald peaks and ridgelines. Bears lumber through the rhododendron thickets and feed on the huckleberry bushes. This is the high country of Mount Rogers.With over 400 miles of trails, 120,000 acres of mountain terrain, and three designated wilderness areas, the highlands of the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area are about as wild as it gets and are fairly accessible thanks to miles of primitive singletrack trails, old logging roads, railroad grades, and horse trails. The A.T. also cuts through this area, passing within a half mile of the trail to Mount Rogers’ 5,729-foot peak, the highest point in Virginia. Here are three unforgettable backcountry experiences in the high country.A Day in the High CountryHead into Grayson Highlands State Park from the south and park at Massie Gap. From there, follow the Appalachian Spur Trail. At the top, hang a left and the A.T. will deposit you right into Wilburn Ridge. Head up in late summer and you can pick blueberries and huckleberries ‘til you puke. You’ll see wild ponies grazing the grassy mountain plains, scramble through boulders and rocky trails, and catch sunsets and 360-degree views.Two Days of Little WilsonMake camp at Grayson Highlands State Park and head into the upland hardwood forests of Little Wilson Creek Wilderness. The Big Wilson Creek trail will take you in and you can branch off and do plenty of exploring, but before you’re done, grab your fly rod and take joy in the solitude of the Little Wilson Creek Trail along the creek bed and make a fishing day out of it. Catch yourself some of the beautiful brook trout that swim the waters of cold, bubbling waters and call it a day with a fire back at camp.Three Days on the TrailTwo and a half miles west of Troutdale, park at Fairwood and catch the A.T. This will take you through the gorgeous lower elevation rhododendron jungles and uphill towards the Old Orchard Shelter. Continue climbing and the A.T. will suddenly open up into the stunning highlands, where you can hike to an old fenced-in pony weigh station known as The Scales. Wild pony herds keep the area trimmed. Continue heading towards the Wise Shelter. This area is scattered with places to camp near the woods of Big Wilson Creek, where you are protected from the sometimes-brutal winds of high-elevation campsites. You’ll have access to water and beautiful starry skies to gaze upon.The next day follow the A.T. towards Wilburn Ridge and through to Rhododendron Gap. You’ll scramble over rocks and boulders, up and down the ridgelines, and boulder the rocky faces of Rhododendron Gap peaking at 5,525 feet. You’ll want your camera here as you gaze out over the moors of Mount Rogers. There are plenty of great campsites around Rhododendron Gap. Set up camp under the spruce trees and save time for a side-trip in the morning before closing the loop. Mount Rogers is home to rare Southern Applachian red spruce and Fraser fir, and its summit lays just a half-mile west from the A.T. Close out your trip by following the Pine Mountain Trail to the A.T. and back down towards the Old Orchard Shelter and Fairwood.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international batted off the talk at the time.“I still have a contract at Leicester,” said Ndidi, who is committed to the Foxes until 2024.“I am learning and trying to improve myself every day and I’m doing okay here so no need to go anywhere.“We are doing well and I’m enjoying myself here.”Now the Daily Express claimed United are taking more than a passing interest” in the former Genk man, who has been impressive in Leicester’s 2019-20 season. Paris Saint-Germain will also interested in Ndidi, but, per the source, the “French champions’ interest has now cooled” with the Ligue 1 side now looking elsewhere.That could well leave the way clear for United to make an approach, but it’s unclear just where Ndidi lies in Solskjaer’s list of midfield targets.Tags: English Premier LeagueLeicesterManchester UnitedSummer TransfersWilfred Ndidi
