Zee's Notes: MHI was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws at his alma mater Harvard University on Wednesday June 5th, 2008 . The local media was abuzz with news when MHI's plane landed at Augusta airport in Maine on Tuesday June 4th. MHI was amongst 11 honorees including US Senator Edward Kennedy and JK Rowling, the creator of the Harry Potter tales and also the commencement speaker. Here is a Time Magazine picture from 50 years ago when MHI was a student at Harvard. I also found this video on YouTube - wow - what a tribute !!! Interesting to see Professor Ali Asani, originally from Nairobi, who celebrates his 25th year of teaching at Harvard in 2008.
