Letters to the Editors

By Martha Burk

To the editors:

D. Ronald Daniel should not wait until the end of the academic year to step down as Treasurer of the University (News, “University Treasurer to Retire,” Sept. 22). His membership in Augusta National Golf Club, along with Harvard Senior Fellow James R. Houghton ’58 and Harvard Management Corporation Director Robert G. Stone Jr. ’45, makes a mockery of Harvard’s standard of non-discrimination. If membership in a discriminatory club is more important to these individuals than the image and reputation of Harvard University, all should resign immediately.
