Harvard to Name First Female President

The New York Times is reporting at http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/09/business/08cnd-harvard.html that Harvard will name historian and Bryn Mawr graduate Drew Gilpin Faust as the new president of the university.

If true, this is a major step, and not just because Faust is a woman. Faust has been active at Harvard for the past six or so years as dean of the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study. When the university chose Summers as president a few years ago, many of us felt that although he was a good administrator, the university would have been better off promoting someone from within the rank and file, who knew the place much more closely.

Dr. Faust would definitely fit that profile. Best of luck to her.

Ummm.... Doctor Faust?

Wonder what kind of deal she made.
I was wondering the same thing...
So, how many people will make the inevitable jokes about Faust's deal with the Devil to get this job?
Heh. Beat you.
Once again, Princeton beat Harvard. :-)
