Members of Dunster House, past and present, paid tribute to former Housemaster Clarence H. Haring last night at a special dinner in his honor attended by President Conant, Provost Buck, and the entire staff of Dunster Associates.
In praising the work of Professor Haring, who resigned last month after 14 years as Master, President Conant said that both Mr. and Mrs. Haring "deserve deep gratitude" for having been "among those who did most to make the House plan successful at Harvard." In his speech, President Conant also saluted the new Master, Gordon M. Fair.
Provost Buck, a one-time tutor at Dunster, presented Professor Haring with an appointment as "perpetual" associate of the House.
Gold Makes Presentation
Just before Professor Haring rose to "thank the undergraduates and staff for their continued cooperation," House Committee Chairman William Gold '49 presented the retiring Master with a pair of silver candlesticks and requested "the Harvard parents of Dunster men" to sit for a portrait for the dining hall.
