LOWELL HOUSE GETS FIRST PICTURE OF WOMAN HUNG

A portrait of Amy Lowell, sister of President Lowell, is the first picture of a woman to be hung in Lowell House, and the second in the University's portrait collection since early in Harvard history. Miss Lowell who, according to legend, smoked big, black cigars, and said. "I'm the only member of the Lowell family who is worth a damn," was one of the foremost Imagist poets.

The picture, painted by Sarah Putnam, a pupil of Sargent's, was placed in the Dining Hall without ceremony Wednesday afternoon.
