Sloan is Executive Vice-President and Chairman of the Board of Atlantic Research Corporation of Alexandria, Va., a company devoted in large part to research and development in the physical sciences.
President Pusey said the new Arthur for a teaching visit by a distinguished chemist outside the University. His teaching, is turn, will enable a chemist on the Harvard Faculty to devote the year wholly to research. The endowment gift of Dr. and Mrs. Sloan thus ensures continuity for a system of visiting scientists and faculty research that was instituted experimentally at Harvard about ten years ago.
