HONOLULU, Hawai‘i (January 5, 1999 - PIDP/CPIS/Hulsen)---Retired U.S. Navy Admiral William J. Crowe, Jr., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Commander-in-Chief of the United States Pacific Command (CINCPAC) in Honolulu, has accepted an invitation to chair a Georgetown University Pacific Islands study project advisory panel.

The Pacific Project, now under development at the Washington, D.C. university's School of Foreign Service, will compliment existing academic programs in Australian, New Zealand and Asian studies.

Dean Robert L. Gallucci, former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large, said Admiral Crowe's counsel will be sought immediately on who might be asked to deliver the first Peter Tali Coleman Lecture on Pacific Public Policy.

The ongoing lecture series, planned to be inaugurated this year, honors the late former Governor of American Samoa.

Announcement of Admiral Crowe's appointment was made in Washington jointly by Dean Gallucci, Guam Governor Carl T. C. Gutierrez and Federated States of Micronesia Ambassador to the United States, Jesse B. Marehalau.
