Download PDF for this date

Professor Sydney Goldstein, head of the department of aeronautical engineering of Technion, Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, has been invited to serve as a visiting lecturer of applied science at Harvard University for the academic year 1954-55, it was announced today by J. W. Wunsch, president of the American Technion Society.

General Yaacov Dori, Technion president, revealed that Professor Goldstein had, at his own request, been relieved of his duties as vice-president of Technion so that he may be free to pursue his scientific work. “We look forward to Professor Goldstein’s return at the end of his year abroad,” General Dori said. “His contributions to the academic, scientific and administrative activity at the Institute during his tenure as vice-president have been outstanding, but we must face the fact that his full devotion to scientific work holds forth even greater promise for Technion and for Israel as a whole.”
