Richard “Dick” Stanley passed away on November 17, 2017. A memorial service was held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 2, at the First Presbyterian Church of Muscatine. Dick was a great friend of International Programs, and an unwavering supporter of international education and global understanding. He supported international education because he firmly believed that knowing more about the world and its myriad peoples and cultures provides a strong foundation for peace and justice. He demonstrated this belief in his career as an engineer, through his leadership roles in the Stanley Foundation and in other organizations, and in his life. Dick was an early proponent of internationalization at the University of Iowa.

2017 marks the hundredth anniversary of the Russian revolution. That tumultuous century saw Russia reject the Romanov dynasty which had ruled for over three hundred years and embrace a new ideology whose leader, Vladimir Lenin, would become the head of the world’s first communist state.  The world watched as the Soviet Union re-created a Russian-dominated empire, lost millions of lives to purges and terror,  withstood the onslaught of Nazi Germany, faced off against the West during the Cold War, then dissolved, with Russia re-emerging under Vladimir Putin as a central player in global power politics.

News. Fake news. Disinformation. Fact-checking. Sourced news. Unverified sources. Social media incursions by foreign nations. Cleverly disguised mass propaganda that masquerades as a heartfelt message from a friend…….who knows what to believe anymore when even undeniably true facts are in dispute? This question was at the heart of the WorldCanvass discussion about “Journalism and a Free Press in the Age of Fake News.”

Brenda and Joe Ewing of Iowa City raised their kids to be curious about the world. Discussions around the dinner table included current events and what they might mean for Iowa. Family vacations exposed them to great museums and unfamiliar cities, and some of the travel was international. When all five Ewing children attended the University of Iowa, they pursued majors suited to their individual goals and ambitions, but the common thread was that each one studied abroad, some more than once.
