More About the Symposium

The symposium honors the legacy of former US Senator from Idaho William Edgar Borah (1864-1940) by considering the causes of war and the conditions necessary for peace in an international context. Themes and speakers for the annual events are selected by the faculty-student Borah Foundation committee, with administrative and fiscal support provided by the staff of the Martin Institute. Each symposium adopts an interdisciplinary, non-partisan focus in an effort to reach as many members of the university and community as possible.

The William Edgar Borah Outlawry of War Foundation, a separately endowed entity at the University of Idaho, was established by the State Board of Education using funds donated by Salmon O. Levinson in 1929.
