Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour received the honorary patronage of the society on the 25th of November. Republican Barbour, who received international acclaim for his efforts following 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina, addressed the society at an exciting time for American politics, discussing the recent presidential election and its place in a broader political narrative. He talked about the difficult situation the Republican party currently finds itself in, and expressed hope at the possibility of a change in its fortunes. We thank the governor for his time, and were very pleased to invite him to the society.
