File Under, You Can Always Tell a Harvard Man, But You Can't Tell Him Much

Laurence J. Gillis, Associate Professor of Legal Studies, University of Maryland and Instructor in Legal Studies, University of Massachusetts-Lowell, and member of the Boston "We've Come for the Davenport" Chapter of the Robert Benchley Society kindly send us this:
The current (March-April 2011) issue of Harvard Magazine mentions RB, in an article entitled "Quotable Harvard"(page 30). Our Man in Cambridge gets Second Banana position, right behind Louis Brandeis, LL.B.1877.

The RB mention is a familiar old saw of his:

There may be said to be two classes of people in the world: those who constantly divide the people of the world into two classes, and those who do not.

--Robert Benchley, A.B. 1912 ("Of All Things", 1921)
