Phi Beta Kappa will elect the Junior Eight on March 7, it was announced last night by C. Crane Brinton '19, Assistant Professor of History. This year, under the new system, the Junior Eight is elected on the basis of the midyear marks, instead of the November marks as in previous years.
Those who are eligible to vote are: this year's Senior sixteen, last year's Junior eight, and a graduate committee of seven. Of these seven, three are ex-officio members of the Society, and three are elected for one year only. The ex-officio members are President Conant, Dean Hanford, and Professor Brinton, the corresponding secretary of the Harvard chapter. Those who were elected are Mason Hammond '25, Instructor in Ancient Languages, Charles C. Abbott '28, Instructor in Economics, Seth T. Gano '07, graduate treasurer of Phi Beta Kappa and Richard C. Curtis '16, prominent Boston lawyer.
