Boston University to Establish Brin Memorial Library

Download PDF for this date

The establishment of a Joseph G. Brin Memorial Library at Boston University was made possible today by an initial gift of $5,000 presented to Harold C. Case, president of the University, by a committee formed to honor the memory of Dr. Brin, late editor of The Jewish Advocate and member of the faculty of Boston University. Mr. Brin died in March, 1952 after a long career devoted to English-Jewish journalism.
