Kaufman Fellows evidence a re-

is intended to honor these indi-

Harvard Law School is honored
by its association with these
The fellowhsip program Is
named for Judge Kaufman of
the Second Circuit Court of
Appeals and honors his distin-
guished career of public service.
The program is funded by The
Annenberg Foundation.
Harvard has created in my
name a permanent fellowship
to promote public service - the
first and only one of its kind,
said Judge Kaufman. In look-
ing back on the exemplary
achievements of the first group
of Kaufman fellows, and in con-
gratulating the new students
honored in 1991, 1 am particu-
larly pleased to note an increase
in the number of extraordinary
qualified candidates seeking
careers in the field of public
service. Such dedication bodes
well for this country's next gen-
eration of lawyers and citizens.
I am proud to lend my name to
a fellowship that enables stu-
dents to fulfill these noble goals.

Outgoing Justice Has
Surgery To Implant

Last Friday, September 6,
outgoing Supreme Court Jus-
tice Thurgood Marshall under-
went surgery: to implant a

pacemaker in his chest at the
Bethesda Naval Medical Center.
A spokesman for the hospital
said Marshall Is resting com-
fortable and in good spirits.
'The pacemaker is function-
ing as expected, said the
spokesman, Lieutenant Com-
mander Bill Clyde.
Commander Clyde said the
pacemaker had been implanted
to treat an abnormally slow
heart rate.
The condition was discovered
during extensive evaluation of
Marshall while under exami-
nation after being admitted to

the hospital after complaining
of light-headedness on Sep-
tember 4. Justice Marshall has
remained in the hospital since
that day.
Commander Clyde said the
83 year-old Justice had re-
mained awake during the pro-
cedure and tolerated it well.
The announcement did not say
when he would be released.
Marshall, the only black Jus-
tice in the Court's history, said
in June that health had been a
factor in his decision to leave
the Court after 24 years. He is
to retire as soon as a successor
is confirmed by the Senate,
He suffered a heart attack in
1976, has had bouts of pneu-
monia and bronchitis, and was
hospitalized in 1987 with a
blood clot in his right foot and
in 1990 for a fall in Chicago.

North Hall Opens Its Doors

Harvard Law School's newest
dormitory, North Hall, opened
its doors to students for the
first time this Fall. The dorm
stands two blocks north of the
campus on Massachusetts Av-
enue in the building that for-
merly housed the Quality Inn.
Earlier this year, the Law
School garnered a long-awaited
permit to convert the hotel to
needed new housing for stu-
dents. The Law School had pur-
chased the property in October
of 1988, and obtained the devel-
opers' lease in March, 1990.
Harvard has made a number
of structural and aesthetic
changes to the building. The
pool has been eliminated, but
the lobby has been restructured
and redone, and new paint
coats have been added.
The dorm is also the first of the
Law School's to be fully co-ed.
Cad Dawson, a resident as-
sistant in North Hall, feels the
dormitory is a very positive
addition to the LawSchool. It's
a great place to live, says
Dawson. It may be a sign that
HLS is putting greater empha-
sis on making students feel
more comfortable in this
stressful environment.
The carpeted rooms range

from 144 to 245 square feet,
and each has a private bath
and double bed, as well as the
traditional dorm  furniture.
North Hall also features indi-
vidually controlled heating and
Residents receive free basic
cable TV service already hooked
up to full-size sets, and priority
for on-site parking managed by
the University.
The building itself has elevators,
two modern, newly-designed,
shared kitchens, a three-room
lounge and meeting suite with an
unexpectedly beautiful view, and
is fullyaccessible to the physically
Ed Joy, another resident as-
sistant in the facility, said, It's
as nice as an apartment com-
plex, but it's even better be-
cause you are surrounded by
friends and colleagues who are
sharing the law school experi-
ence with you.
The one thing which is already
producing snickers is the sign
outside the building which now
reads:NORTH         HALL,
OPEN. It refers to the Dollar
rent-a-car which is still oper-
ating In the building. This may
not be clear to all who read it.

The new damitcy has such cuTparaWvely luxuious features as air
conditioning, cable 7V private btllivoms, and priority parking.
