The Department of Government's program was initiated in 1934 to prepare recent college graduates or those with one or two years' practical experience, but not over 24 years of age, for positions as legislators or administrators in Federal, state, and local governments, and as publicists or trade association officials.
The course of study has been kept flexible in order that each Fellow may supplement as effectively as possible his own previous academic work and practical experience. For those who have not actually held government positions, the plan provides an opportunity to combine one or two years of graduate work in Government and Economics with a year's internship in some branch of the government.
Of the group appointed in 1934 and 1935, the following men have just been reappointed:
Robert W. Frase, Madison, Wisconsin, B.A., 1934, University of Wisconsin, Social Security Board; Paul Cushing Howard, Rahway, New Jersey, A.B., 1935, Brown University, Social Security Board; Dayton Wood Hull, Rochester, New York, A.B., 1935, Harvard, American Trucking Associations; Gove Griffith Johnson Jr., Aurora Hills, Virginia, A.B., 1934, Harvard, Treasury Department; Oscar Mendel Lurie, New York City, A.B., 1935, Harvard, will remain for an additional year with the United States Employment Service, and William Augustus Waldron 2nd, Schnectady, New York, A.B., 1935, Union College, will spend next year in the field, probably with some state government.
