Alison R. Bernstein ’69 was elected as the youngest member of the board of trustees in the history of the college.  President Simpson said of the PhD candidate in history at Columbia, “If anyone can mediate between hairy youth and hoary age, it is Alison Bernstein,” and a college spokesman, asked if any other trustees were in their 20s, replied “Oh, heavens no.  The next youngest trustee is Samuel C. Butler, a 1951 Harvard graduate.”     The New York Times
