It has been suggested that Harvard should have a professorship of Egyptology. The foundation of a professorship of archaeology would, perhaps, be more timely at present, and more to be desired. The University of Pennsylvania has such a professorship; and, in the notable revival in classical and antiquarian studies at Harvard, it would seem that the establishment of a permanent chair in archaeology here would be an especially appropriate outcome of this increased interest. Such a professorship would add greatly to the advantages offered by Harvard for post-graduate students, and in connection with the American Institute of Archaeology its work could be made exceedingly useful and valuable.
