The Fulbright Program, administered by the U.S. Department of State, was founded in 1946 for the purposes of fostering exchange between American and international students. In this lecture Harriet Fulbright provides an intimate look into the origins of the program, describing how the idea for international exchange evolved over the course of her husband's career in Congress. She traces the program's history from the passage of Senator Fulbright's 1945 Bill, and what she sees as the future of his legacy. Recorded on 10/29/2013. (#26013)
