L. Gard Wiggins, administrative vice-president, recently compared the people-to-People program which carried him to Frankfurt, Germany, and Strasbourg, France, to the Peace Corps. "It is sure to create better understanding between Americans and their counterparts in other countries," he commented.
Wiggins and Charles S. Davidson, associate professor of Medicine, represented the University on Mayor John Collins' delegation to Strasbourg, Boston's "Sister City in Europe." The 21-man group spent two days in Strasbourg and three in Strasbourg as part of an international program of cultural exchange begun under the Eisenhower administration.
Strasbourg, like Boston, is a port with a history as a "cradle of liberty," Wiggins said, and the two cities are roughly equivalent in size. The University of Strasbourg is almost as large as Harvard, but within five years it will probably boast an enrollment of 20,000 students.
