Last year's Pulitzer Prize winner in history, Van Wyck Brooks, '08, will come here during commencement week in June to be orator of the annual exercises of the Harvard chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
The exercises, open to the public without charge will be held in Sanders Theatre on Tuesday, June 21 at 11 o'clock. This is a change from the custom of recent years to hold them on Friday of Commencement week.
Presiding at the exercises will be Samuel Williston, Dane Professor of Law and President of the Harvard Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Professor Williston is retiring this year, and this is his last year as the head of the Chapter at the University. David T. W. McCord '21 will be the Phi Beta Kappa poet.
