TWO PROMOTED TO RANK OF PROFESSOR The board of trustees has voted to promote two members of the faculty to the rank of professor. The board, at its May meeting, promoted Joseph E. Harrington Jr. of the Department of Economics, effective July 1, and Philip I. Hieter of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, effective May 1. Dr. Harrington, a member of the Hopkins faculty since 1984, is a leader in two disciplines, said Matthew Crenson, acting dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. Harrington works both in economics, where his specialty is industrial organization, and in political science, where his special interest is formal political theory. Dr. Hieter, a member of the School of Medicine faculty since 1985, has made important contributions to our understanding of how chromosomes are segregated to each daughter cell in mitosis, said Michael Johns, dean of the medical faculty. He has also developed new methods for gene mapping and cloning, now in wide use around the world, Dr. Johns said.
