Seven Professors Win Guggenheim Fellowship Grants
Seven Harvard professors were among the recipients of fellowships from the' John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the foundation announced Saturday.
The stipends are intended for living and travel expenses for a year of study, John E. Dowling '57, professor of Biology and, fellowship winner, said yesterday.
The other six Harvard fellowships went to Alan M. Dershowitz, professor of Law; Orlando Patterson, professor of Sociology; Seymour Slive, Gleason Professor of Fine Arts and director of the Fogg Art Museum; Dr. Don W. Fawcett, Hersey Professor of Anatomy; Dr. Karel F. Liem, Bigelow Professor of Ichthyology; and Dr. Alan A. Stone '50, professor of Law and Psychiatry.
The average monetary value of the year's grants, awarded on the basis of past accomplishment and "future promise," is not available, but it should be comparable to last year's average of $14,829, Mary Judge, an editor for the foundation, said yesterday.
Patterson said he will be on sabbatical next year at Cambridge University, completing a book he has been working on comparing different forms of slavery.
