Gottheil Medal to Be Presented

Download PDF for this date

The Gottheil Medal, awarded annually by the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity to the American who has done the most for Jewry, will be presented tomorrow to the pilgrimage team of the National Conference of Jews and Christians-the Reverend Everett R. Clinchy of New York City, Father J. Elliot Ross of Charlottesville, Va., and Rabbi Morris S. Lazaron of Baltimore. The recipients were selected by a committee of editors representing the Anglo-Jewish press.

The presentation will take place tomorrow night at a banquet at the Metropolis Club, 105 West Fifty-seventh street. Louis S. Posner of the Board of Education will preside, and the presentation address will be made by Harold Riegelman, counsel to the Citizens’ Budget Committee.

The Gottheil Medal was established in honor of Dr. Richard J. H. Gottheil of Columbia University, who for many years was national president of Zeta Beta Tau. The New York City presentation banquet is the key affair of forty-two which will be held tomorrow by alumni of Zeta Beta Tau from coast to coast, to celebrate the fraternity’s annual “Founder’s Day.”
