NEW WIDENER TREASURES

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The announcement in today's CRIMSON of the recent donation of Hebrew books to the University is but another gratifying reminder of the vast and constantly augmented resources at the disposal of devotees of Widener Library. The immediate value of the new collections, which are amazing testimonials of scholarly industry from a standpoint of careful selection and historical completeness, is the greatly increased field of research for students engaged in such a highly specialized study. The position of distinction which Widener now assumes among the authentic sources of Hebraic and Oriental knowledge attaches a new note of importance to the University as a promising field for research of importance by the Hebraic scholars of the country.

These donations, both by Harvard graduates, are valuable in another sense, in that they also serve as a pleasing reminder of the active interest taken in the welfare of the University by its alumni. Harvard owes much to the loyalty of her graduates, and the present instance is a particularly gratifying example of the manner in which Harvard men cooperate in the maintenance of her long standing position of educational preeminence among the educational institutions of the world.
