The Russian Review/Volume 1/February 1916/On "The Russian Review"
PRESIDENT BUTLER AND PROFESSOR DEVINE
ON "THE RUSSIAN REVIEW."
(From Letters to the Editor).
...I am very glad indeed to hear of the establishment of "The Russian Review" and trust that it will do much to spread in this country fuller knowledge of the language, the life, the history, and the institutions of the Russian people. We are building up at Columbia University, under the leadership of Professor Prince, what we hope will become a very important Department of Slavonic languages and literatures, and in this Department, of course, chief attention is given to Russian.
NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER,
President of Columbia University.
As one who shares the newly awakened but certainly now very keen interest in this country in Russian affairs, I am very happy to learn of the project for the Russian Review.
There is no doubt that there is need for such information as the Review intends to supply.
EDWARD T. DEVINE,
Director, The New York School of Philanthropy.
