The citation identified him as one of a handful of scholars who created the field of genocide studies. "St. Andrews is Scotland's oldest university, dating from 1413, and it appers that the Winter Graduation ceremony has changed little over at least the past 300 years. As we left the graduation (me in my 'medieval' robe) we were led by the piper, followed by three mace bearers wsith their fifteenth-century macess, the Chancellor, the the rest of us in adademic regalia of many colors. It was a bit cold and windy, but a wonderful occasion and experience. My wife and I have never received more gracious and elegant hospitality than that at St. Andrews. A lof of memories to Keep.
