Former Governor Herbert H. Lehman was presented today with a Scroll of Honorary Fellowship in the Weizmann Institute of Science at Rehovot. The scroll was presented to Mr. Lehman at a luncheon here by Dewey D. Stone, chairman of the Institute’s Board of Governors and chairman of its American Committee.

The Fellowship, announced earlier this year in Rehovot, was conferred on Mr. Lehman “in recognition of his unmatched public service of over 60 years, his dedication to humanitarian causes and human rights, his unblemished and resplendent integrity, his unwavering devotion to the high principles and ethical values of Judaism, his valiant and unremitting friendship for the State of Israel, and his fruitful support of the Weizmann Institute.” Mr. Lehman was accompanied by Mrs. Lehman.
