Galbraith to Stay in India Till Fall
The Corporation has voted to extend the leave of absence of John Kenneth Galbraith, Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics, from March 31 to the opening of classes in September.
Galbraith has been serving as U.S. ambassador to India since President Kennedy appointed him in the spring of 1961. He was reportedly planning to return to the University by the March 31 deadline until the President asked him specifically to remain through the critical months of the India-China border conflict.
President Pusey, in announcing the decision, noted that the vote was a departure from normal Corporation police, justified only by the special circumstances of the Sino-Indian border war.
