During Commencement week (see page 51), the Harvard chapter of Phi Beta Kappa conferred teaching awards, based on undergraduates’ nominations, on Mary M. Gaylord, professor of Romance languages and literatures; Peter J. Gomes, Plummer professor of Christian morals and Pusey minister in the Memorial Church; and Nancy Mitchnick, Arnheim lecturer on studio arts, cited for her course, "Painting with Attitude." Lucie Brock-Broido was introduced as holder of a unique hat-trick: a PBK member, former PBK teaching-award winner during her Harvard stint as Briggs-Copeland Lecturer, and now the poet at the society’s literary exercises.
