Description
From excerpt: Hungarian President Arpad Goncz accepts a key to the Rotunda from University President John T. Casteen III following Goncz's September 17, 1990 Dome Room speech on the global legacy of the Bill of Rights, part of events marking the bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution. UVa constitutional authority A.E. Dick Howard looks on. Goncz, who was held as a political prisoner for six years for participating in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, has been a lawyer, a steelworker and welder. He is also a playwright and translator of many American writers, including William Faulkner.
