This fellowship was established by Mr. James Loeb '88 in 1901 in memory of Charles Eliot Norton '46 and in appreciation of his distinguished services to classical archaeology. The prize, which amounts to an annual income of $1175, may be won by any undergraduate or graduate student in the University or in Radcliffe College.

The award will be made in considertion primarily of a thesis; and secondly on the basis of any evidence of out-standing scholarship which the committee may be able to secure. The theses will cover a wide range of subjects which have been suggested by the committee. These are:

2. The Hellenistic schools of sculpture.

3. Romanticism in Greek lyric poetry.

4. The drawing of the character of Aeschyius.

5. The development of the background in Greek reliefs.

6. Aristophanes and Ben Jonson.

7. Greek conservatism as illustrated by comedy.

9. The personification of abstract ideas in Greek tragedy.

10. The influence of Anacreon on modern poetry.

11. Caricature in Greek art.

12. The conception of justice in the Greek tragic poets.

13. Mutual benefit associations in antiquity.

14. The "Mycenaean" culture and the Homeric poems.

In special cases the committee may not require the thesis. In the event that all the theses should prove unsatisfactory, the committee has announced that it will reserve the right to refuse the granting of the award. The successful thesis will be published in the "Harvard Studies in Classical Philology" and its author will study during the year of his incumbency at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, devoting himself to any of the following subjects: Greek History, Literature, Art, Archaeology, Epigraphy, and Topography.

The committee in charge of this fellowship consists of Professor C. B. Gulick '90, Professor H. W. Smyth '18, and Professor G. H. Chase '96
