On Thursday April 13th, several of Smith Soc's Boston-area chapters and members - the Boston professional chapter, the MIT Sloan chapter, and the affiliated students at Harvard Business School - welcomed former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. Smith Soc members gathered to hear Kelly discuss his experiences policing crime and combating terrorism, and also leading one of the world's largest police departments. Kelly detailed these experiences in his autobiography, Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting Its Empire City, published in 2015 and reissued in paperback last year.
At the event, Commissioner Kelly was interviewed by Andrew McClure of MIT Sloan and Logan Lelise of Harvard. Also joining the evening was Paul Fitzgerald, Superintnedent of the Boston Police Department, and a friend and colleague of Commissioner Kelly.
