The announcement was made yesterday by the American Trustees of the Henry Fund, of which the Harvard representatives are President James B. Conant, Jerome D. Greene '96, and Dean A. C. Hanford.

Three Yale Fellows Also

Three Fellows from Harvard and three from Yale have been named this year. The Yale representatives are David T. Dellinger '36, Bernard C. Rankin '36, and Robert A. Rosenbaum '36.

The Henry Fund was founded by the late Lady Julia Lewisohn Henry "in the earnest hope and desire of cementing the bonds of friendship between the British Empire and the United States." The Fellowships are given to English students for study at American universities and to American students for study at English universities in alternate years. Each is valued at five hundred pounds sterling and is for one year of study at either Oxford or Cambridge.


Candidates for the Fellowships must submit evidence of distinction in some recognized branch of learning and must present a satisfactory scheme of study to the Committee of Management at the time when their candidacy is made known.

Of the three Harvard recipients of the Fellowships, Hall will go to Oxford and Alexander and Helmholz will study at Cambridge.
