When President Lowell receives congratulations from his friends this morning on his sixtieth birthday, he can feel certain, as most men cannot, that all the compliments paid him are deserved. As head of the University he has carried on the work begun by President Eliot, not merely as a capable administrator, but as a man of vision and foresight. Under his leadership Harvard has maintained her position among the first universities of the world, and has blazed the path to higher fields of scholarship. The war has dimmed the light of science and letters in Europe, but President Lowell has helped to keep the flame burning brightly in America. May he enjoy many birthdays as President of this University.
