Drake Law School’s Neil Hamilton Plays Key Role in Honoring Senator Tom Harkin
Neil Hamilton, director of the Drake Law School Agricultural Law Center, was in Washington, D.C. last week to participate in the official unveiling ceremony for the portrait of Senator Tom Harkin, as Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee. Professor Hamilton chaired the committee that raised funds for the portrait, which is owned by the Iowa State Historical Society and on permanent loan to Congress.
Over 250 people attended the ceremony in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Building. In addition to Senator Harkin and Hamilton, other speakers included Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee; Senator Pat Roberts, ranking minority member; and Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture.
