Band Establishes New Scholarship With $15,000 Gift

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Harvard Band has given the University over $15,000 to establish a scholarship, Alan S. Novins '59, assistant band manager, announced yesterday.

The gift was made in memory of Macolm H. Holmes '28, a former conductor of the band. The fund drive was first begun at the 1953 Commencement exercises, to honor Holmes' tenth anniversary as conductor. Ten days later Holmes died, and the band has since solicited alumni contributions and given special concerts to reach its $15,000 goal.

An incoming freshman, as yet un-named, will be the first recipient of the scholarship. The stipend will be approximately $800. The person who holds the scholarship will not be required to join the band; the only stipulation is that he "be the type of person to carry on the band's great tradition."

Chief organizers of this year's effort to raise money for the scholarship have been Frederic L. Reynolds '20 and Kenneth H. Lang '58, band manager.
