True story. At Harvard, the people in charge of each of the residential colleges, called houses, is a master (I think that female heads are also called masters, but when I was there no such person existed, so I don't know for a fact--they may be called mistresses. smile ) Anyway, one of the people who could have been master of one of the major houses was W. J. Bate. He declined the honor, though.

I think you know why. laugh
