Under pressure from Traditional Enemies, Bucknell University withdraws Invitation

Dear Mr. Irving, -- Unfortunately, due to strong opposition by the History Department here, as well as from various ethnic organizations, I have to regretfully withdraw our offer for your visit. While I think that you could be an interesting educational experiece, a few opinions by some students isn't much against a whole department. Once again, my apologies. -- Judy 

Mr Irving had accepted an invitation from students at the prestigious Bucknell University in Pennsylvania to come and speak there some time after late March 2000 and the completion of his lawsuit against Deborah Lipstadt. No final topic had been arranged.
