Sargent to Resign His Nieman Post


Dwight E. Sargent, curator of the Nieman Fellowships in Journalism, is resigning his post to return to the newspaper profession.

Prior to Sargent's appointment as curator in 1964, the Ford Foundation had granted $1.2 million to the program, to be matched by private grants. With the help of W. Davis Taylor, publisher of the Boston Globe, Sargent was able to achieve the $1.2 million dollar goal from private grants.

Sargent and Taylor then organized the Associates of the Nieman Foundation, which provides an annual assembly for editors and publishers to exchange views on contemporary issues with distinguished scholars of Harvard.

President Bok, in accepting Sargent's resignation, said, "Through your efforts, the Nieman program is on a sound footing and enjoys wide support throughout the publishing industry. You should take great pride in this accomplishment."
