Peace Corps Yearn
After taking a Bi. in me
chanical engineering at Mas
sachusetts Institute of Tech
nology, Finch received a com
mission in the Army Quarter
master Corps. By the end of
World War II, he was chief
of a textile research group at
the Jeffersonville, Ind., Quar
termaster Depot where he di
rected the development of a
fireproof finish for tent fab
rics and a tropical finish im
pervious to mildew. Dis
charged a Major, he returned
to M.I.T. to obtain advanced
degrees (M.S. and Ph.D.) in
textile technology while serv
ing at the same time as a
member of the faculty.
Dr. Finch, an assistant "pro
fessor, was named director of
the Slater Memorial Textile
Research Laboratory at
M.I.T. where he supervised
the development of a' n e w
high-impact suspension-1 i n e
system for parachutes, an
item demanded by the new
age of jet airplanes.
In 1951 a trip to Japan
started him in the "interna
tional business." He spent two
months in Tokyo as an ad
viser to the Ministry of Edu
cation and to Japanese uni
versities on problems of en
gineering education and the
engineeiing profession in the
United States.
The following year, he was
sent to Burma for two months
to develop a relationship be
tween M.I.T. and the Univer
sity of Rangoon, and on his
return home, he was placed
in charge of the Rangoon
project at his own university.
In 1953, Finch returned to
Burm-afor a stay of 17
months first as -deputy di
rector and then director of
the Foreign Aid Mission there.
It was a
time in which

charged with closing up shop,
watched with satisfaction as
the Burmese government took
over and continued most of
the components of the Amer

Chatfield said a 1962 Ne

in larger high schools "dem

smaller schools" and that a
survey of achievement in Re

Academic achievement, he
said, seems to depend heavily
on three factors:
The talent and effort of
the student.
The ability of the school
to provide competent teach
