The Jewish experience at Harvard and Radcliffe : an introduction to an exhibition presented by the Harvard Semitic Museum on the occasion of Harvard's 350th anniversary, September, 1986 by Nitza Rosovsky( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to an exhibition at the Harvard Semitic Museum on the occasion of Harvard's 350th anniversary, September 1986. Discusses the proposed quota for Jewish students at Harvard in 1922, when the Jewish student body had reached 22%. Harvard president A. Lawrence Lowell (also vice-president of the Immigrant Restrictive League) feared that the influx of "undesirable" Jewish students would prevent others from applying, undermine the university's American tradition, and heighten antisemitism. Describes reactions of alumni, students, and the press. Although an investigating committee affirmed the traditional policy of non-discrimination, an unofficial quota was adopted in 1925 and lasted until the 1950s. Regarding Radcliffe, there is evidence of tacit restrictions on Jewish admissions, but relations between Jewish and Gentile students were good. Includes excerpts from memoirs, and reprints of articles about social prejudice against Jews
