The U.S. Embassy in Tallinn helped kick off on the evening of February 4th a Ronald Reagan Film Festival at the Artis Cinema in Tallinn, with opening remarks from Chargé d'Affaires Robert Gilchrist. The festival, which the Embassy is supporting, is being held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of our nation's 40th president. In addition, the Embassy is bringing to Tallinn noted Reagan expert Dr. Lee Edwards, who will be the keynote speaker at a February 14 seminar organized by the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute and held in cooperation with the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, titled "Ronald Reagan 100: President Reagan's Legacy and Estonian-U.S. Relations."
Ronald Reagan was born on February 6, 1911 and was Governor to the state of California (1967-75) prior to becoming our nation's 40th president on January 20, 1981. He remains an important figure in contemporary history, including for his strident efforts to end the Cold War.
