Title:
Landon Chronicles (1938): Kenneth on Trying to Get Harvard to Take Prince Damrong's Library (hour 63, clip 4)
Date:
1938
Description:
When Kenneth tried to have Harvard take Prince Damrong's library he got on the telephone and called the heads of various departments, including Dr. Keyes DeWitt Metcalf, the head of the library and the most famous librarian in the U.S. at that time in collegiate and academic work. Kenneth called on him and showed him the listing of all these books he had for the university if they were interested. Metcalf declined the offer. When the war broke out, Dr. Metcalf was lamenting the fact that Harvard did not have a library on Southeast Asia to support courses. Kenneth reminded him about his offer to him that he rejected, only a few years earlier. (Length 4:03)
