Welcome to Harvard!


Bell Named to High Chicago U. Post

Laird Bell '04, Chicago attorney and a member of the board of overseers at Harvard was recently elected chairman of the board of trustees of the University of Chicago. Bell was president of the Harvard Alumni Association in 1946.

Bell, a member of the law firm of Bell, Boyd & Marshall, was named to the Chicago board of trustees in January 1929 and has been its vice-chairman for several years. He is also the chairman of the board of Carleton College, Butter-field, Minnesota.

Bell succeeds Harold H. Swift, who requested that a successor be chosen for the position at Chicago, which he has held since 1924. Swift will continue as a member of the board as he has done since his election to it in 1914.
