Mortimer B. Zuckerman LL.M. ’62, chairman of the board and co-founder of Boston Properties, publisher of the New York Daily News, and editor-in-chief and publisher of U.S. News and World Report, visiting Harvard on Sept. 28, joined President Lawrence H. Summers in welcoming the inaugural class of Zuckerman Fellows.Twenty-five fellows were selected to pursue a graduate degree at the Kennedy School of Government, the Graduate School of Education, or the School of Public Health. Each is also pursuing a graduate degree in business, law, or medicine. The Fellowship Program, supported by Zuckerman’s $10 million gift, aims to combine the expertise and perspective of the various fields for the benefit of the public sector. “My years as a student and teacher at Harvard represented a turning point in my life,” Zuckerman said. “I am thrilled to be able to support a Harvard program to encourage public service.”Zuckerman recently gave Harvard an additional $500,000 to support the Harvard University Debate Council, noting that the skills developed in debate are particularly useful in terms of developing, framing, and articulating positions on a variety of important topics that leaders face throughout their professional careers.
