He served in the Chemical Warfare Service during the war, first as a private and later as a second lieutenant. He came to Harvard last spring to pursue the graduate study of chemistry and was given the DuPont Fellowship. The award has been repeated this year to enable him to go on with his researches.
The Scandinavian Fellowship awarded each year to a Scandinavian student recommended by the American-Scandinavian Foundation of New York was given to Alf Melander, a first-year student in the Business School. Mr. Melander comes from Orebro, Sweden, and Studied at Upsala University. He is one of six Scandinavians who are studying Business Administration this year.

These scholarships are awarded in accordance with the will of William S.
