John Harvard's Journal
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.
