April 7, 1964
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two outstanding educators of this city were presented with the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanities Award at a dinner here last night, inaugurating the 1964 St. Louis Israel Bond Campaign. The recipients of the award were Thomas H. Eliot, chancellor of Washington University; and the Very Rev. Paul C. Reinhert, a Jesuit priest, who is president of St. Louis University.

The two educators were cited for their “leadership in promoting education as the vehicle for enlightenment and peace, and for the preservation of the democratic principles and ideals that are the common heritage of the United States and Israel.”
