A squad of men for special duty during air raids is needed at the Fogg Art Museum, Rutherford J. Getens, fellow for technical research, announced today. The work of the squad will consist of setting up the system for the protection of the pieces in the Museum, including the metal shields which have been prepared to protect the paintings.
The job is open to all members of the University, but Fine Arts concentrators are especially welcome, since this will be an excellent way for them to become acquainted with the Museum, which is the focal point of their field at Harvard.
The post does not require any previous training as a warden, but instruction will be given to all members of the squad, and practices will be held frequently. All who are interested should go to the Museum office and obtain further information about the plan.
