This paper contains the texts of presentations at the RAND Graduate School's (RGS) sixth commencement exercises on November 12, 1988, in Santa Monica, California. The featured speaker was Dr. Harold Brown, Chairman of the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins Foreign Policy Institute, and former Secretary of Defense (1976-1980), who addressed "U.S.-Soviet Relations." The paper also contains remarks made at the exercises by the two recipients of the RGS honorary doctoral degree, James R. Schlesinger and Ralph W. Tyler, as well as comments by RAND President Donald B. Rice, and the Dean of the School, Charles Wolf, Jr.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
