”I had the distinct privilege of knowing Nancy Hatch Dupree.” Ambassador A. A. Jalali

Tuesday September 12th, 2017

“I regret the loss of Nancy Hatch Dupree, the great American Scholar, who loved Afghanistan and had a strong passion for documenting, preserving and promoting Afghanistan’s cultural heritage. I had the distinct privilege of knowing her and her husband, the late Louis Dupree, since late 1970 and I am proud of supporting her project to establish the Afghanistan Center at Kabul University (ACKU) in 2003 – 2005. Nancy’s decades-long service in Afghanistan is the memory of a great name, which the Afghans will honor forever.”

Ambassador A. A. Jalali
