Since 1996, Norwich University's Colby Symposium (named in memory
of the late Ambassador William E. Colby) has brought top authors,
historians, journalists and filmmakers to Norwich University each
spring. Founded in 1819, Norwich University is the nation's oldest
private military college and the birthplace of ROTC. In 1998, the
Colby Symposium broadened its scope to the nation's capital, where
it sponsors an annual panel discussion each winter and where the
winner of the prestigious Colby Military Writers' Symposium Book
Award is announced. This year's panel is on the controversial topic
of "Civilians in the Path of War." Three top authors in the field
will give brief presentations on what each believes are the key
issues associated with the topic, then the moderator will lead a
free-form discussion. A reception and book signing will follow.
