Corporation weekend: Newsworthy

“At a meeting of the corporation of Brown University to-day two new scholarships were announced. . . . Vacancies in the Board of Fellows were filled. . . . Plans for a new library building were adopted.”

Once upon a time, Corporation meetings got the attention of the New York Times. The events of this June 1875 meeting were small beans compared to what Corporation members decided Saturday, but it seems here was no mention of this weekend’s meeting in the Times. (Though a March 1 article helpfully informs us that President Simmons will be leaving the board of Goldman Sachs. Hm, we thought we’d read about that somewhere.)
