ABSTRACT
The article comments on the nomination of Joseph Duffey to replace Ronald Berman as chairman of the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities during the term of U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Berman had resigned in January 1976 after being blocked on a partisan vote in the U.S. Senate committee. Whereas Berman was an established scholar, with first-rate credentials and wide publication, Duffey's credentials are singularly unimpressive. He has a doctorate from Hartford Seminary and has briefly held a couple of academic posts, but he has spent most of his career on the sawdust trail of unsuccessful partisan politics.
