Regional Studies Likely to Occupy Geographic Unit


The Regional Studies Program is the most likely future tenant for the now-vacant Institute of Geographic Exploration, the CRIMSON learned last night.

Professor of History Donald C. McKay, who heads the program, last night said he had not yet learned of any Corporation decision concerning the building, but admitted that "It's under consideration by the administration--that's all I can say."

Actual announcement of what will be done with the building is not expected from the University for some time, possibly not until next term.

Several other University departments are believed interested in obtaining the building for their use. It is quite possible that no single department will take over the Institute, but that a group of them may share it.

The Regional Studies Program is at present scattered throughout various University buildings, including Littauer and the Dudley Commuters Center. The program this year has courses--mainly on the graduate level--in three areas--China and Japan, Soviet Russia, and international affairs.

The modern red-brick building on Divinity Avenue has been empty since the first week in October, when wealthy A. Hamilton Rice '01 discontinued financial, support of the Institute.
