The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has received a grant of $100 000 from the O‐F Foundation of New York City to establish a lectureship in memory of the late Francis L. Friedman, professor of physics at MIT and chief scientist of the Physical Science Study Committee. Professor Friedman, who died on August 4, 1962, at the age of 43, also played a leading role in the establishment of MIT's Science Teaching Center and was its first director. Under the new Francis L. Friedman Lectureship in Physics, distinguished physicists from institutions elsewhere in the United States and abroad will be invited to offer lectures at MIT.
