to Prof. Katsh, another
highlight of the event was
the presentation of an hon-
orary doctorate .and the
Morris J. Kaplun Memorial
Prize to U. S. Attorney Gen-
eral Edward H. Levi. The
$5,000 prize that goes with
the latter was declined by
Attorney General Levi and
was turned over to Dropsie
University for scholarships.
Another important fea-
ture of the dinner program
was the presentation of the
eight scholars who had
earned Doctor of Philosophy
degrees. Three non-Jews
were among those who
earned the PhD degrees.
In addition to the ad-
dresses by Prof. Katsh and
Attorney General Levi the
audience heard comments
from other program par-
ticipants: William B.
Thomas, chairman of the
Dropsie board of gover-
nors; Leon J. Perelman,
chairman of the executive
committee; and Zvi Le-
vavy, president of the Ka-
plun Foundation. The in-
vocation was by a 1944
Dropsie graduate, Rabbi
Reuban J. Magil, and the
benediction by a non-Jew-
ish scholar, the Dropsie-
educated Rev. James A.
Pollard of the Zion Baptist
Church, a major portion of
whose blessing was in
classical Hebrew.
The resignation of Dr.
Katsh after nine years in
the Dropsie presidency met
with deep regret from local
and national leaders in the
American Jewish commu-
nity. The high standards of
graduate Jewish studies es-
tablished at Dropsie are in
evidence in the positions
held by the many who have
earned doctorates at Drop-
sie.
Under Dr. Katsh's leader-
ship the Dropsie library has
been remodeled and it now

He has also received hon-
orary degrees from Hebrew
Union College—Jewish In-
stitute of Religion, Spertus
