The President and First Lady of Iceland, Guðni Thorlacius Jóhannesson and Eliza Reid, spent a day in January at Harvard. They had a tour of Harvard Yard with an undergraduate student tour guide, a visit to Widener Library, and a courtesy visit at Wadsworth House with the Interim University Marshal, Margot Gill. They then spent the afternoon at the Kennedy School, where both the President and First Lady had their own lunchtime events with students and faculty. The President then gave a public address in the JFK, Jr. Forum. The visit was co-hosted by the Arctic Initiative at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School.  Photo Credits: Bennet Craig, Multimedia Producer, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School.
