Paul Ignatius, former US Secretary of the Navy

In "Now I Know in Part," Ignatius looks back on family history, childhood in Glendale (long before it had a major Armenian community), colorful characters (famous and obscure), Hollywood brushes with greatness, military service during World War II, a memorable journey to Historic Armenia with NAASR in 2006, and more.

A descendant of Armenian parents from the Kharpert region of Historic Armenia, Ignatius is a native of Glendale, California, and a graduate of the University of Southern California. He earned an MBA from Harvard University after serving as a naval officer in World War II.

Co-sponsored by the Armenian Studies Program and Armenian Students Organization and the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research.
