Alumni Hear Speeches
The Associated Harvard Alumni (AHA) and representatives from 70 Harvard Clubs convened for their annual fall meeting here this weekend.
Dean Rosovsky addressed the AHA Thursday evening on the new Core Curriculum and George Putnam, University Treasurer, outlined the state of Harvard's financial investments yesterday.
President Matina Horner and several other Radcliffe administrators together presented "a kaleidoscopic view" of Radcliffe during its centennial year.
For many alumni Rosovsky's speech was the first official presentation of the Core. Richard I. Brickman '57, AHA regional director for Florida, said yesterday the general reaction was "overwhelmingly favorable."
Putnam's speech on Harvard's investments was also well received. There was no mention of the controversy over Harvard's investment in corporations with operations in South Africa.
Many alumni were aware of the forthcoming Capital Fund Drive, although there has not yet been any official announcement. Wayne P. Libhart '51 said he is in favor of the Capital Drive, because Harvard needs to "get out from under the yoke of Washington."
