At the forum, civilian experts join Air Force faculty in intensive discussions of global security issues. Dr. Lewis was also selected for a Distinguished Educator Tour of USAF training programs, including a tour of chemical warfare familiarization, police markmanship training, and special forces training.
He also presented a paper, "Impact of the W. Bush administration on official information, privacy and security issues, 2001-04." to the Alabama Political Science Association conference, Jacksonville State University, 1 Apr. 2005. Dr. Lewis is currently researching a paper on official information, privacy and security issues with the aid of outstanding HC undergraduates Liz Arnett, Patrick Dean, Tyler Fletcher, Walker Garrett, Hunter Wolfe and Alexander Zachos. He is also preparing a new seminar on Third World Politics and Terrorism in Fall 2005. This April, Dr. Lewis was promoted to Full professor.
This spring, Political Science students enjoyed two all-star guest speaker series. One, for International Relations included experts from the Air War College faculty who presented on topics such as war talk in the Caucasus, the future of conflict, US-European relations and the latest theories of international relations. Dr. Lewis brought a senior Fulbright lecturer from India to discuss Indian politics. The final presentation will draw connections from W. Bush's hyperpower to the Ottoman empire of Suleyman the Magnificent.
The second series, for American
Politics, Law and Public Organizations has included Judge Lucie McLemore
on the bill of rights in the district court procedures, and a discussion
with Deputy Solicitor General Scott Rouse on the issue of judge-made rights
in court opinions. Recently, HC trustee and Alabama Power Vice President

Dr. Lewis's Birthday party Class of 2004||Graduation 2004| p2 | p3 | NEW Graduation 2004 Hi-Res, p1| Hi-p2 | Hi-p3 | NEW During commencement ceremonies, the honorary degree Doctor of Laws was awarded to Acting
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice J. Gorman Houston Jr. (who presented the
commencement address, "Liberty in Law.") and legendary Judge Frank M. Johnson Jr..
Justice Houston received his B.S. degree from Auburn University and his LL.B. from the University of
Alabama School of Law. He served as law clerk for Chief Justice J. Ed Livingstone of the Alabama
Supreme Court and as a judge advocate in the United States Air Force. After practicing law in Eufaula
for 25 years, he was appointed to the position of Associate Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in
1985, was elected to that position in 1986, and has served as a distinguished elected member of the
Court for 18 years. Chief Justice Houston is an active member of the United Methodist Church, serving
as a lay speaker and as a Sunday School teacher for the last 30 years. In addition to these
achievements, his honorary doctorate citation recognizes, "His leadership in the Ten Commandments
controversy surrounding the Alabama Supreme Court has been instrumental in the State of Alabama's
affirmation of the authority of the First Amendment ... [and] has protected Huntingdon College's right to
foster an independent academic environment, where the promise of free and unfettered pursuit of the
study and worship of God may be undertaken without civil regulation or interference."
A decorated World War II veteran, graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law, Haleyville
attorney, and United States Prosecutor for the Federal District of North Alabama, Judge Frank M.
Johnson Jr. became the youngest federal judge in the United States when he was appointed to that
position in 1955. His honorary doctorate citation recognizes, "From his Montgomery chambers and
courtroom, his decisions shaped the Civil Rights Movement. During the period between the Bus
Boycott of 1955 and the Selma March of 1965, he was a champion of desegregation as a matter of
justice in schools, colleges, police forces, state employment, and other areas of Southern life."
Montgomery attorney M. Roland Nachman, who will accept the award on behalf of his late friend, has
said, "He understood that a failure of a judge to resolve a claim of constitutional violation is not judicial
abstention; it is a decision not to enforce constitutional rights by the very agency established under the
Constitution to do so."
