Chauncey (1905-1997) was Assistant Dean of the Faculty at Harvard until 1945, and chair of the scholarship committee. (He later was instrumental in developing standard college entrance tests.) Chauncey had majored in philosophy at Harvard. Here he explains how John Conrad Russell could apply for a Harvard scholarship.
Chauncey begins his letter:
"Your father was kind enough to have dinner last evening with a small discussion group, to which I belong, and on the way home, he mentioned that you were interested in the possibility of coming to Harvard and also in applying for a scholarship. I promised your father that I should write you and explain the situation."
