In June 1988, Bo traveled to Santiago, Chile. The trip was sponsored by the Fulbright Commission and its stated purpose was to celebrate the two hundredth anniversary of the United States Constitution. Bo was accompanied by Abner Mikva, then a judge on the D.C. Circuit and by William Van Alstyne, a law professor at Duke. In a series of public lectures, Bo described the marvels of our Constitution, though he did so in a way that boldly and bravely discredited the orthodoxy that had long nurtured the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
