Editor’s Note: January 31, 2006

The article, “Anti-Semitic Statements Found on Hitchcock Dorm Room Whiteboard” (1/27/06), was written based on limited information provided by the Office of the Dean of Students and a small number of last-minute sources.

An editorial decision was made close to deadline to go forward with publication despite this limited information because of the significance of the events.

Information that the Maroon has obtained since publication indicates that the article’s headline did not fully represent the events. The writings found on the Hitchcock whiteboard could be considered both anti-Semitic and racist.
