Tony Blair, former prime minister of Great Britain, will deliver Lafayette College’s Lives of Liberty Lecture in the spring of 2013.
Blair, who served as Britian's leader from 1997 to 2007, is the second world figure to give the annual address. Vice President Joe Biden spoke at the school in May.
Originally begun to celebrate the college's namesake, the Marquis de Lafayette, the lecture series "features accomplished individuals whose lives embody the ideals of the Marquis in the world today," the school said on its website.
