An accounting of the century-old history of Semitic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Drawing on an association with the University that spans four decades, Cyrus Gordon profiles the people, times, and accomplishments of a leading center for Semitic studies in America. Gordon’s personal glimpses of such luminary figures as Montgomery, Margolis, and Albright provide heretofore unpublished details about the development and history of the Semitic program at The University of Pennsylvania.
