For the third consecutive year, the Dana Reed Prize for the best piece of writing in a Harvard undergraduate publication has gone to CRIMSON editors.
Douglas M. Fouquet '51 and Bayley F. Mason '51 received the award for their survey of admissions policies at Harvard which appeared in the June 21, 1951 issue of the CRIMSON. The short story, "The Water Hazard," printed in the June, 1951 issue of the Lampoon, netted honorable mention for Michael J. Arlen '52.
The Prize was established five years ago as a memorial to Dana Reed '43 who was reported missing over the Adriatic while he was piloting a B-24 on a mission over Northern Italy during World War II.
The Lampoon and the Advocate have each won the prize once. Two years ago, the CRIMSON won the prize for its first Academic Freedom survey, while last year Donald Carswell '50 received the award for his "Beating the System," a treatise on examsmanship, or the art of taking (and passing) a Harvard exam.
