WOODS HOLE, MA - H.D.S. Greenway, columnist for the Boston Globe, will present a lecture titled "America in a Dangerous World" at the Marine Biological Laboratory's (MBL) Falmouth Forum on Friday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lillie Auditorium, MBL Street, Woods Hole. Greenway's presentation is sponsored by the Associates of the Marine Biological Laboratory and is free and open to the public.

Greenway was educated at Yale University and served in the U.S. Navy. After graduate study at Oxford, he began his career in journalism in the London Bureau of the Time-Life News Service in 1962. For the next ten years he reported from Washington, the United Nations, Saigon, Phnom Penh, Vientiane and Bangkok, covering events in Southeast Asia and the Indian sub continent. Greenway was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard from 1971 to 1972.

In 1972 he joined the Washington Post, and, after covering the State Department in Washington, became the Hong Kong bureau chief responsible for China. Greenway covered the end of the Indochina war from Phnom Penh and Saigon, and was sent to Jerusalem in 1996 reporting on Israel, the Palestinians, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iran.

In 1978 he joined the Boston Globe as its national and foreign editor, responsible for the national political campaigns of 1980, and 1984. He was tasked with establishing the Globe's overseas bureaus. Greenway's reporting assignments for the Globe included Beirut, Baghdad, Bosnia, Southeast Asia, China, South Africa and the Indian sub-continent. He was editor of the Globe's editorial page from 1993 until his retirement in 2000. He now writes a weekly foreign affairs column for the paper.  Greenway has written freelance articles for the New York Times, Newsweek, The World Policy Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, the New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Chicago Sun Times and La Reppublica.
