By will of the late Henry L. Pierce, ex-mayor of Boston, Radcliffe College received a bequest of $20,000, which the executors have just paid over. The sum is to be held as a permanent fund.
The estate of Ellen M. Barr is also given to Radcliffe to be used, after all debts are paid, for annual scholarships of not less than $250 and not more than $300. It is required that the scholarships be given to students who in point of character, ability and physical constitution give promise of future usefulness and stand in need of pecuniary assistance. Three of these scholarships have been awarded this year.
