Abstract

I would like to quote at length from Paul Samuelson, who wrote a piece exactly thirty years ago for Newsweek magazine about a time thirty years before that "when giants walked the earth and Harvard Yard": When Diaghilev revived his ballet company he had the original Bakst sets redone in even more vivid colors, explaining, "so they would be as brilliant as people remember them." Recent events on college campuses have recalled to my inward eye one of the great happenings of my own lifetime.
