SPEECH AT THE DAR-ES-SALAAM CULTURAL SOCIETY - 1957-11-25

Hazar Imam at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.

Mr President, Your Worship, Ladies and Gentlemen

I have been asked to speak to you about Harvard University and studies of the Middle East. This is a double-barrelled topic which would take many hours to exhaust, but I hope in my own small way to be able to point out how the research work done in today's most advanced universities has and, I believe, will continue to contribute to solving some of the area's thorniest problems.
