Nitze looks back at SAIS
As Paul Henry Nitze puts it, the School of Advanced
International Studies began with two men discussing the
fate of the world over breakfast.
It was the summer of 1943, the world
embroiled in war. Nitze, then director of the State
Department's Office of Inter-American Affairs, and Christian
Herter, a congressman from Massachusetts, were sharing a
Georgetown residence while their wives, first cousins,
vacationed on Long Island.
During one of their early morning talks,
Herter brought up the need for the creation of a school of
international studies in the nation's capital. The two men,
both cum laude graduates of Harvard University, agreed that
in a world undergoing profound changes, such a school would
be needed to train men and women in international affairs
during the post-war era.
Three-City Study releases findings on child
There is no such thing as the perfect child-care setting.
But in the quest to create the ideal place for children of
working mothers on welfare, borrowing the best elements from
existing models might be a good place to start, say
researchers from Johns Hopkins and Boston College.
The conclusion is the result of the latest
research conducted in Boston, Chicago and San Antonio
through Welfare, Children and Families: A Three-City Study.
Started in 1998 by researchers at five universities, its
purpose is to examine the consequences of welfare reform for
the well-being of children and families. Andrew Cherlin,
chair of the Hopkins Sociology Department, is lead
