Prof. Albert T. Clay of Yale University has been commissioned to open the new school of archaeological research in Bagdad this winter. The school will be known as the American School of Oriental Research.

As a nucleus for the library of the school, there have been received some 200 books on Assyriology of the late Professor Morris Jastrow, donated to the school by Mrs. Jastrow. Professor Clay hopes to gain from the Emir Felsul a grant of land for the school.
