NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)
9th April, 1923 : A long-running dispute over the admission policies of Harvard University has ended. Harvard overseers have unanimously voted to maintain the policy of “freedom from discrimination on grounds of race or religion.” The vote represented approval of a report of a committee named last June to examine the university’s admission policies. The question of discrimination in the case of Jewish applicants came up early last year. Discrimination against Negroes came to public attention when President Lawrence Lowell wrote to Roscoe Bruce, an alumnus, that his son could not be housed in a freshman dormitory because he was a Negro. This caused national criticism of Harvard.
