When Berg graduated in 1923, Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell had just instituted anti-Semitic quotas on Jewish students. Princeton, of course, has always denied doing so itself, not that anyone ever believed that. I wonder if Berg's papers say anything about being Jewish in so overwhelmingly WASP a school in his day. Or would any such comments have been sanitized?
