Police to Guard ‘putzy’ in Boston

Download PDF for this date

Ernst F. S. “Putzy” Hanfstaengl, who is due in Cambridge for the reunion of the Harvard class of ’09, will register at the Harvard Union tomorrow at two o’clock, as is customary for returning alumni.

Because of recent anti-Nazi riots in this city and the continued picketing of the German Consulate on State street, which resulted in two arrests Thursday, elaborate police safeguards are to be provided for Hitler’s aide while in Boston and in Cambridge.

Meanwhile speculation is rife as to what the Harvard Corporation will do about the $1,000 scholarship that Hanfstaengl has offered to the university. The Corporation is to meet tomorrow afternoon.
