The Giamatti era begins

Forty years ago today, Yale announced that A. Bartlett Giamatti ’60, ’64PhD, would be the university’s 19th president. He took office on July 1 of the following year, when acting president Hanna Holborn Gray became president of the University of Chicago. It is a sign of the recession-straitened times that the news appeared in a tabloid-sized newsprint version of the magazine, which alternated with regular magazine issues in the late 1970s.
