Poet and essayist, DAVID MCCORD for thirty-seven years has solicited contributions to the Harvard Fund from his office in Wadsworth House. His appeals hare taken the form of short essays so graceful and, cajoling that they have given a new meaning to what he calls the language of request. Here is the last of the series, for Mr. McCord will retire from the fund next month. In 1956 he received the first degree of Doctor of Humane Letters ever given by Harvard.
DAVID MCCORD is widely known not only for his own poetry and light verse but also for his comprehensive anthology What Cheer.
