Colleagues Honor Former President Lowell

Saltonstall Mourns Lowell

The death of President Lowell closed a memorable chapter in the history of Harvard University and of American education. To me personally it meant the loss of a friend whose inspiration was always stimulating--when I was a student; as I worked with him on Harvard affairs as an alumnus; and in public life. His brilliant mind and broad philosophy ranged far beyond educational limits and definitely contributed to progress in practical government. Massachusetts and the nation will miss a wise counsellor and guide to fuller life.
