On Feb. 23, the University Club will be giving former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld — who became a member in November — its “highly coveted William Howard Taft Public Service Award.” The event — which sold out “within 48 hours of the first announcement” — will also feature Tony Snow and his band, “Beats Workin.”
