HOUSTON -- The James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela.

“Nelson Mandela is one of those rare historical figures who successfully navigated the course from being a revolutionary leader to being a national statesman,” said honorary chair James A. Baker, III, while introducing Mr. Mandela to a Rice University audience in 1999. “During my years in public life, I had the opportunity of meeting any number of world leaders, but none, and I repeat none, is more deserving of the appellation 'great’ than is Nelson Mandela.”
