Several petitions have recently been received by the Board of Overseers, in regard to the matter of allowing graduates of the various graduate schools to vote for overseers. At it now is, only graduates of the College proper and those who have received degrees from the College, are allowed to vote.
About this time last year, the same question was brought up, and decided by a close vote against allowing the graduates of the schools to vote. Since then petitions have been sent in from nearly all the schools and an informal request to the same effect has been received from the Harvard Club of Chicago. If a vote were taken now, the decision of last summer would probably be reversed, but it seems likely that action will be deferred till next year.
