Lipsky Named Honorary Fellow by Weizmann Institute of Science

Louis Lipsky was honored at the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovoth today for his contributions to the institution which five years ago established exchange fellowships in his name. Mr. Lipsky was named an honorary fellow of the Weizmann Institute, the 14th to be so named in its history. The American Zionist veteran then delivered the annual Weizmann Memorial Lecture, speaking on “Theodore Herzl, Chaim Weizmann and the Jewish State.”

Mr. Lipsky’s 80th birthday was marked here yesterday at a reception given in his honor by the Histadrut executive. Speaker of the Knesset Joseph Sprinzak and Isaac Hamlin American Labor Zionist leader who now lives in Israel, joined in tributes to Mr. Lipsky and his contributions to American and world Zionism.
