AUC’s Greek campus to be transformed Into Egypt’s first technology park

A part of The American University in Cairo (AUC) for almost five decades, the Greek Campus will now be home to Egypt’s first technology park in downtown Cairo. AUC has signed a 10-year lease agreement with Tahrir Alley Technology Park (TATP), a Cairo-based company that intends to keep the Greek Campus name and operate it, with AUC retaining full ownership. A reception was held on the Greek Campus on Thursday, 14 November to officially announce the university’s plans. “We hope this new initiative will bring vitality to what has been, and will remain, our neighborhood and the home of our historic Tahrir Square campus,” said AUC President Lisa Anderson. “It is especially rewarding to see that the campus will be used to serve the purpose of advancing technology and entrepreneurship.” Ahmed El-Alfi, founder of TATP, looks forward to creating a hub where entrepreneurship and creativity can thrive in the heart of Cairo: “The Greek Campus will not only act as technologically advanced office spaces but also as a center for creative minds, startups, and technology multinationals to work, meet, and collaborate.”

The location dates back to even earlier times since it was established in 1964 (Photo from The American University in Cairo)

Purchased by the university from the Greek community in 1964, the Greek Campus –– which has been closed since after AUC relocated to New Cairo in 2008 –– was the hub of social activity for students, located one block away from the Main Campus. It housed the library, Social Science Building, Social Research Centre, Jameel Center and School of Continuing Education (previously known as the Centre for Adult and Continuing Education and Division of Public Service). When it was first purchased, the Greek Campus included a theatre, print shop, two tennis courts and a cafeteria.

The Greek Campus was purchased during the presidency of Thomas Bartlett, who was in his mid-30s at the time, who worked relentlessly on expanding AUC’s facilities for it to grow and become a first-class institution contributing to Egypt’s development. “In the late 1940s, it was apparent that more space was needed to accommodate the expansion in the student body and programmes,” said Bartlett in “The Day We Bought the Greek Campus.”

To do that, Hill House and the Science Building were constructed in 1953 and 1966, respectively. In 1964, money that was initially going to be used for the construction of a 10-storey building on the Main Campus was used instead for the purchase of the Greek Campus, the largest addition to the university during Bartlett’s tenure. “Suddenly, the opportunity came to buy two Greek schools, where the Greek Campus is now located, [but] we first needed approval to use the money given to us for construction on the Main Campus for purchasing the Greek schools instead,” said Bartlett, who served as interim AUC president from 2002 to 2003 and is currently an AUC trustee. “The Board of Trustees approved the proposed shift on 19 July 1964.”

Once permission was secured, Bartlett faced another challenge. The Greek community wanted hard currency, and that is something “AUC did not have and could not legally have paid,” he said. In addition, there were doubts as to whether AUC was eligible to buy the Greek Campus under the laws that were in effect at the time. “Fortunately,” said Bartlett, “Mr. Pierakos [Greek community leader] eventually accepted Egyptian pounds, and the Egyptian authorities did not object to the sale.”

“On the day of the sale,” Bartlett said, “Mr. Fayek Wissa, the accountant, and I had to carry several satchels containing the purchase money, since a cheque was not legal tender for the transaction. About EGP 409,500 in ten pound denominations had to be counted and transferred in the presence of the official in the registration office. That was done, and the final papers for the purchase were signed on 15 March 1965.”

One of the most distinct features of the Greek Campus was the library. The library was initially located in Hill House, but with the rapid increase in the university’s collection of books and periodicals and the ever-expanding needs of students and faculty members, the building became inadequate. In 1971, President Christopher Thoron consulted with experts in the field, and the Board of Trustees asked American architect Hugh Jacobson to draft plans for a new library that would be located in the Greek Campus. In May 1974 AUC broke ground on the project and construction progressed until 1976, when a fire broke out, destroying columns, beams and cement work on the first floor. Work on the library was halted for nearly two years, and in 1982, under the tenure of President Richard F. Pederson, the Greek Campus library was complete. Jacobson designed the library building with its exterior facing the street, as well as a plaza and platform steps extending from the building to the garden areas at the centre of the Greek Campus. As Thomas A. Lamont noted in The American University in Cairo: 1987 – 1995: “The dramatic contours of AUC’s library have given the Greek Campus its own architectural flavour.”

Another major building on the Greek Campus was the Abdul Latif Jameel Centre for Middle East Management Studies, for which construction began in 1987 and was completed in 1989. The building accommodated the steady growth of the student body in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as well as the increasing demand on management, engineering sciences and other professional programmes. The Social Science Building on the Greek Campus, with its long, tall staircase, housed the departments and offices of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. In addition, the Division of Public Service, which is now the School of Continuing Education, offered, for many years, adult education courses at the Greek Campus to large numbers of Egyptians, affirming the university’s mission of service to the community.

An integral part of student life, the Greek Campus has been witness to 50 years of AUC traditions, activities and memories; from performances in Wallace Theatre, University Senate meetings in the Blue Room, student club activities, including group weddings for orphans, late-night stays in the Caravan newsroom and crowds of students at the Copy Centre to International Day festivities: fun for children at the day care centre and gatherings in the Model United Nations office located in the Social Science Building.

To bid farewell to the Greek Campus before the university’s move to New Cairo, a gathering was held there in May 2008, bringing together members of the AUC community. The event included folklore and music performances, as well as a documentary featuring faculty, students and alumni reflecting on precious memories and favourite spots on campus.

Turkey has released a condolence message for former Greek Cypriot leader Glafcos Clerides, voicing sadness over his loss and underlining his service for the Greek Cypriot people.

“It is particularly saddening that Clerides lost his life without being able to see that a permanent and comprehensive resolution that would rebuild partnership on the island had been reached,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a written statement released on Nov. 17.

The statement also recalled that Clerides’ lobbying efforts for a U.N. reunification plan for Cyprus had ultimately failed after the Greek Cypriot side rejected it in a public referendum in April 2004. The plan, named after then-U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, was accepted by the Turkish Cypriot community.

Born in Nicosia on April 24, 1919, Clerides, 94, founded the ruling right-wing DISY party in 1976 and served as Greek Cyprus’ president from 1993 to 2003 in back-to-back terms.

The Foreign Ministry statement particularly underlined that, starting from 1968, Clerides had played an important role in the negotiation process aimed at resolving the Cyprus issue, along with the founder president of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC), the late Rauf Denktaş.

The ABC is stifling debate on Armenia by denouncing critics

THE ABC has a new topic on which no debate is allowed. Try, and you’re denounced as a “denier”. God, I’m sick of these attacks on reason.

Demonstrate that the “stolen generations” is a myth are you’re a “racist”.

Point out that the world has failed to warm as global warming activists claimed and you’re a “climate change denier”.

Now this, from the ABC on the weekend: “One of the world’s most vocal Armenian genocide deniers will make an address at Parliament House in Canberra next week.”

Labor’s Laurie Ferguson had booked a room for an address titled “What happened during 1915-1923?”

“The address will be given by Professor Justin McCarthy, an American history professor who many Armenians view with the same disdain as Jews view Holocaust denier David Irving.”

I’ve heard McCarthy lecture and am appalled this scholar is likened to a Holocaust denier.

McCarthy does not deny that a million or more Armenians died in Turkey in one of the last century’s most brutal conflicts. What he disputes is that Turkish authorities deliberately planned the killings to wipe out the Christian Armenians.

He argues they were instead the result of a civil war after Armenian irregulars backed a Russian invasion.

Here come our politicians.

NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell was attacked by Turkey last week for successfully getting Parliament to condemn “the genocide of the Armenians”.

It is not the NSW Parliament’s business or expertise to resolve historical debates over events a century ago in another land.

Time we thought with our brains, not our fashion sense.

Medal struck by First Fleet surgeon expected to fetch $500,000

It’s not in great condition but the Charlotte Medal is of ”immense historical interest” and, despite a few holes, is expected to fetch $500,000 at auction this month.

The Charlotte was one of the six convict ships in the First Fleet. The ship’s surgeon John White was keen to have a memento to record the arrival.

Who better to engrave a silver medal for him than convict Thomas Barrett, known to White as an adept engraver who had already been caught forging a few coins along the way?

White’s personal servant William Broughton handed over the silver disc and engraving tool, and supplied the fixes of the ship’s position to be recorded.

Broughton is believed to have commissioned a copper version of the medal for himself.

A month after arriving at Port Jackson, Barrett, having finished the medals, was tried for stealing provisions and hanged. He became the first convict to be executed in the fledgling colony of NSW.

The silver version, having first returned to England, now resides at the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour. The copper version went ashore with Broughton, who was appointed government storekeeper in Parramatta. The coin was found in 1940 on a farm in Camden that Broughton had links to and appears to bear his initials ”WB”.

John O’Connor, of Noble Numismatics, which will auction the medal in Sydney, said when they originally sold the silver Charlotte Medal the owners of the copper medal came forward. Until that time it was thought perhaps the silver medal had been produced in England because it was in an English collection but as soon as the copper medal appeared it immediately substantiated a theory that the silver medal had been engraved in Australia.

Mr O’Connor said: ”Apart from the design of the ship, which is on the silver medal, the rest of the inscription is almost repeated verbatim. I would think if the Maritime Museum found out about it there would be a bit of a mad scramble to make sure it never leaves the country.”
