Morton Holbrook III, a native of Owensboro, was a career U.S. diplomat (Foreign Service Officer) for 32 years, with assignments in Taiwan, China, Japan, Philippines, France, and Hong Kong, as well as in Washington D.C., where he worked in the U.S. Department of State Legal Adviser’s Office.  Since retirement as a diplomat, he has taught courses in U.S. Foreign Policy and in International Law at Brescia University and at Kentucky Wesleyan College.  A graduate of Vanderbilt University (B.A., 1964), he also has law degrees from the University of Chicago and Columbia University.

Institutions of higher education are required by federal law to offer a program or commemoration on or around the anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution on September 17.  The law was proposed by the late Robert Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia.
