MIT’s SEMINAR XXI: Politics, Perspectives, Paradigms Educating the Future Leadership of the Nation
MIT’s SEMINAR XXI:  Politics, Perspectives, Paradigms Educating the Future Leadership of the Nation

Captain Jake Stewart graduated from Georgia Tech with a BS in physics and was commissioned in the Navy in April 1962.  He served in executive and command positions in Atlantic and Pacific Fleet destroyers and commanded the destroyer USS Stribling (DD-867).

In operational tours at sea, Stewart participated in the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US response to the North Korean seizure of the USS Pueblo and the 1969 shoot-down of a Navy reconnaissance aircraft with the loss of 31 lives. In the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, his ship led the USS Enterprise (CVAN-65) battle group into the Bay of Bengal to give military weight to President Nixon’s intention of “tilting toward Pakistan” and to influence the Indian government’s further aspirations in South Asia. Captain Stewart made two deployments to Vietnam and the Gulf of Tonkin.

Ashore, Stewart did graduate research at Stanford University’s High Energy Physics Lab and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). He earned a Ph.D from the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California in Elementary Particle Physics.  His first Pentagon tour in Navy Systems Analyses ended with a Federal Executive Fellowship to the Brookings Institution. Later, Captain Stewart was a senior staffer at the National Security Council (NSC), the White House in the Carter Administration, under Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Returning to the Pentagon, Stewart directed the Chief of Naval Operations’s “think tank,” and was the Navy’s Long Range Planner. He was temporarily assigned as special assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff where he drafted the final five minute portion of President Reagan’s address to the nation about the Strategic Defense Initiative (“Star Wars”). His next duty assignment was in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, as Assistant Under Secretary of Defense/Acquisition, for Planning and Analysis.

Upon retirement from the Navy in 1987, Stewart joined the federal government’s Senior Executive Service (SES) at the Department of Energy (DOE). While at DOE, he conducted significant managerial reviews for several DOE secretaries: The Future of the DOE National Laboratory System; DOE/EPA Post-Manhattan Atomic Bomb Clean Up; and the issue of the permanent disposal of high level radio active waste at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.

In 1985 Stewart co-founded Seminar XXI, an experimental educational program for future US leadership in the national security community. In September 2019, Seminar XXI will convene its 34th academic class. Represented in the class of 2019-2020, are Fellows from all military services, the intelligence community, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Departments of State, Homeland Security, Energy, USAID, the national laboratories, and non-governmental organizations (e.g., Mercy Corps, Save the Children, International Committee of the Red Cross).

Parking Changes for the Loudermilk Parking Garage
United Way is now contracted with LAZ Parking to provide the parking services for the Loudermilk Center parking garage.  And with this comes changes to our parking system, some now and some in the future.  Please be sure to read all information thoroughly to avoid having your car towed.
Beginning immediately, parking will cost $12 just for a vehicle to enter the garage and immediately leave it.  There is no complimentary time.  So be sure you obtain a parking validation sticker when you arrive to a club meeting to ensure that you aren't charge the higher rate. 
Reserved Parking Places are only available for Kiwanis Club members who display the Kiwanis decal on their car at all times, even after the club meeting begins.  You must have this decal placed inside your back window on the passenger side. If you have a convertible, you can place it on the front window on the drivers side.  It is a static cling decal and easy to adhere.  Please get one from Karen at the luncheon meeting.  If you do not have a decal on your car, you may park in any unmarked parking space located on floors 4 through 6 of the garage.
Guests attending the luncheon meetings will need to park in unmarked parking places, and not the reserved spots.
Starting Immediately: If you do not have a decal on your car and you park in a reserved space, you will be booted and you must pay to remove the boot.  The 2nd and subsequent offenses may result in your car being towed.
Parking Cards: If you have a parking card, you will need to complete a form identifying your vehicle and license plate, and return to Karen ASAP.  There is a place on the form for a second vehicle in case you drive an alternate car at times.  This form will help LAZ identify you as a Kiwanis card parker in case there is ever any trouble with your card working and your ability to enter/exit the garage.  A Parking Form may be downloaded HERE.
Also, parking cards are being reprogrammed and will only work on Tuesdays from 9:30 am - 4 pm.  If you have a parking card and have been using it to access the garage on other days, it will no longer work.
Parking Cost Increase:  Beginning October 1, Parking will increase for both those with parking cards and those that do daily tickets.  Beginning October 1st, Parking Cards will cost $38 per quarter and parking tickets will be $4 per luncheon visit and only valid on Tuesday.
Thank you for your attention to this and ensure that your car does not get towed by placing a decal on your car immediately, or parking in the unreserved places.
Thank you.
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for about 6 individuals who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
