Wow, how can MEALAC be so retarded? What are Russell's political views? − Reaganaut 19:25, 15 November 2007 (EST)

Egad, what happened here? The intro is now highly redundant and makes it hard to find why Russell is significant. I propose this instead:
- James Robert Russell CC '74 (1953 - ) is a professor of Armenian Studies at Harvard. A distinguished alumnus of Columbia College, he is undoubtedly one of the foremost scholars of Armenian history and culture in the world. Despite this, Russell has been repeatedly denied tenured appointment by Columbia's MEALAC department, probably for political reasons. While at Harvard, Russell has nevertheless fought to introduce a Great Books curriculum, in the model of Columbia's Core.
- Approved. The important thing is that he tried to introduce Great Books at Harvard. Ttan 16:19, 18 November 2007 (EST)
