Morris Warschauer, since 1923 executive clerk of the building committee of the Board of Education of the City of New York, was yesterday appointed assistant secretary of the Board. Mr. Warschauer became connected with the Board of Education in 1907 as an office boy. Four years later he was assigned as clerk of the committee on buildings. When this committee was merged with the committee on sites he became clerk of the new body.

Mr. Warschauer, who is a member of the Bronx Council of the Federation for the Support of Jewish Philanthropic Societies, has been connected with the building and sites bureau of the Board of Education for a longer period than any other individual. He has outlasted half a dozen municipal administrations.
