A Large Hole In the Ranks Come 1975


By Charles E. Shepard

The University this week began searching for a successor to Robert Tonis, chief of Harvard police, who will leave his position in June 1975 after reaching the mandatory retirement age for Corporation appointees, 66.

A committee selected by Stephen S. J. Hall, vice president for administration, will conduct the search for a replacement for Tonis, who has worked with the University's security forces since 1962.

The job description seems Herculean: The position said Tonis, requires "a law enforcement officer who will relate to the local police, and fit into the Harvard community and thinking, as I have tried to do."

Hall has thus far chosen two professors, one administrator and two students to serve on the committee--all of them male. But he has promised at least one woman representative in the final composition of the group.
