A New Library Brochure in Praise of George Bennett, Class of 1923

With funding provided by the Friends of the Academy Library, a new publication has been produced celebrating English instructor George Bennett ’23 (1905-1965) and the writing fellowship that was created in his honor. The booklet features essays by alumnus and writer, Elias Kulukundis ’55, and Charles Pratt ’52, who administered the fellowship for over three decades. The brochure, entitled “An Invisible Mentor: George Bennett, the Man Behind the Fellowship,” is available in Rockefeller Hall in the Library.
