Honor at the United Nations Recognizes the International Reach of a Legendary Figure | New York Times | June 10, 2016
This article originally appeared in The New York Times on Sept. 16, 1998. Cameras were clicking inside United Nations headquarters yesterday afternoon when Secretary General Kofi Annan '61 presented the Greatest, Muhammad Ali, with the Messenger of Peace honor. The boxer and the Secretary General shared a sports background. Annan had been a sprinter and soccer player at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. Ali, of course, is the three-time heavyweight champion of the world, the greatest of all time. Each man has devoted his life to the pursuit of peace, Annan as a diplomat, Ali as an unofficial ambassador.
