HONOR OF THE lectureship

member adjudged to have achieved
the highest distinction in hisr
chosen field of scholarship. For-
mer Henry Russel lecturers select
the candidate for the honor.
Their action is then passed on
by the council of the Research
Club and the Regents.
Both the lectureship and the1
award were established by a be-
quest from Henry Russel, class of
'73, of Detroit. The will stated
only that the income from the be-
quest was to be used to provide
additional compensation to mem-
bers of the teaching staff.

use $250 annually for a Henry
Russel Lecture and another $250
