. ‘This is no time to be on the sidelines,’ Biden tells University of Delaware graduates « JO LEE MAGAZINE

USA TODAY/On a Sunday afternoon in June 1965, research scientist Caryl Haskins addressed 1,038 University of Delaware graduates sitting in folding chairs on the campus mall.

Among the graduates was Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Haskins encouraged the graduates to explore the new careers proffered by the scientific revolution while warning of the potential pitfalls of a world too far adrift from spiritual values and “humanistic endeavor.”

Fifty-seven years later Biden returned to Newark in Haskins’ place, addressing graduates from his alma mater for the first time as the 46th President of the United States.
