Harry S. Truman has been voted the Hebrew University Bublick Award for 1953, it was announced by Dr. George S. Wise, chairman of the Board of Governors of the Jerusalem institution and president of the American Friends of the Hebrew University.

Over one thousand leaders in government, business, science and education, including the presidents of some of America’s foremost universities, as well as key figures from both major parties, will see Mr. Truman receive the award at a dinner tendered by the American Friends of the Hebrew University on Thursday evening, November 12, at the Hotel Waldorf Astoria.

The Solomon Bublick Public Service Award, which is granted in recognition of “outstanding public service to Israel, the Jewish people, and all mankind,” was first awarded in 1949 to Prime Minister David Ben Gurion of Israel, the only recipient to date.
