107 Faculty Called for Review of Tenure Procedures in Letter to Dean Gay

AWARD TWENTY-FIVE DETURS TO ENCOURAGE "BREEDING UP AT THE COLLEGE OF HOPEFUL YOUTHS FOR PUBLIC SERVICE"

CLASS OF '22 LEADS LIST WITH 12 PRIZE-WINNERS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Twenty-five men have been awarded Deturs at Harvard College on the basis of last year's academic work. Deturs are books given as prizes to men who for the first time in their college course have achieved a position in the first group of scholars.

These awards are purchased with the income from a fund left by Edward Hopkins, a London merchant who was several times Governor of Connecticut Colony in the 17th century and later warden of the Fleet under Cromwell, "to give some encouragement in those foreign plantations, for the breeding up of hopeful youths, both at the grammar school and college, for the public service of the country in future times."
