Remembering Sidney Harman ('39), A Beloved Baruch Alumnus

Sidney HarmanIt is with much sadness that Baruch College notes the passing of Sidney Harman (Class of '39), whose generosity and vision have transformed our classrooms, our students and the excellence of our academic programs. Sidney Harman endowed the Harman Writer-in-Residence Program in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and through it exposed thousands of Baruch College students to the wisdom and creativity of world class authors such as Edward Albee and Francine Prose. He was a member of Baruch College's "17 Lex Society" and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by the College in 2009. More on Remembering Sidney Harman
