The Everett P. Pope Lecture Series, sponsored by the Bowdoin Marine Corps Society, enables the Bowdoin community to engage with foreign policy and national security practitioners and experts.
Major Pope, USMC, graduated from Bowdoin in 1941, where he was captain of the state champion tennis team and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He fought in the Pacific at Guadalcanal and Peleliu. In 1945 he received the nation’s highest decoration for valor, the Medal of Honor, for leading his rifle company at Peleliu.
