Lawrence Lowell (1856 - 1943) During his tenure, "...controversy was sparked by Lowell's attempt to reduce the number of Jewish students enrolling at Harvard. Lowell, who purported to be a thoroughgoing assimilationist, was especially alarmed by the rising percentage of Jewish students in the college. Although he contended that "excessive" numbers of Jews on campus would breed anti-Semitism, he failed to impose the kind of quota he thought desirable. The university's new commitment to a "national" student body, however, was aimed at broadening the demographic mix on campus, with the result that the number of Jewish students did decline. (Edward L. Lach, Jr. in the ANB ) Our research indicates that Lowell formed various committees to further his influence on the subject; the online wiki provides a fuller treatment than the ANB and gives further references to newspaper and scholarly articles, contemporary & modern.
