A special Radcliffe scholarship fund has been established in honor of retiring President Jordan and Mrs. Jordan from anonymous donations totaling more than $21,000. Establishment of the W.K. and Frances A. Jordan Scholarship Fund was made at a farewell dinner for the President Wednesday.
Mrs. Carl J. Gilbert, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, lauded Jordan for his "life-long commitment to scholarship at the highest level." In announcing the fund, Mrs. Gilbert expressed the hope that the gift would "keep you both permanently with us and will help the college in the way which you understand is most vital today."
Jordan, who will resume his teaching duties at Harvard next fall, will be on leave of absence starting Monday.
