Harvard head coach John Tillman agreed Tuesday night to become the ninth head coach at Maryland. The paperwork is still being completed, but an announcement could come as early as Wednesday, according to a source familiar with the situation. Terps athletic director Debbie Yow and senior associate athletic director Michael Lipitz, who heads the university's search committee, did not respond to e-mail inquiries. A school spokesman declined to comment, citing the absence of official paperwork required before confirming such a hire.

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III added an honorary degree from Harvard to his list of awards on Thursday morning, hailing it as recognition of his university's profound strides in the academic world. "The respect our colleagues at Harvard have for UMBC as a research university is clear," he said. In bestowing the degree, Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust praised Hrabowski as "a galvanic force in his university's ascent." Among those who shared the honor and the stage with Hrabowski?

While the lock on Supreme Court nominees by Harvard and Yale is to be deplored ("A supremely limited pool of high court candidates," May 16), it will be hard to break. For over 130 years there was not a Jewish justice on the Supreme Court and very few Catholic ones. However if Elena Kagan is confirmed, there will be six Catholic justices and three Jewish ones. For many years the WASP establishment controlled our government, and now that is a scenario of the past. For about the same time, entry into elite universities was restricted for minorities, and this too has changed.

If confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan will bring greater diversity to the court by adding a third woman. What she will not bring is educational diversity. Her confirmation will leave the court entirely composed of former law students at either Harvard or Yale. President Barack Obama's decision to select a nominee from one of these two schools is particularly disappointing as a replacement for Justice John Paul Stevens — an iconic figure on the court who was also its only graduate from an alternative institution (Northwestern)

The Johns Hopkins University passed itself off as Harvard in a movie Monday without feeling the least bit flattered. "It feels degrading somehow," said Diego Ardila, 19, as he watched workers remove the words "Latrobe Hall" from a stately brick building and replace them with "Kirkland House." Hopkins' Homewood campus is standing in for Harvard in "The Social Network," a movie about the creation of Facebook by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg. The movie, like some Hopkins students, couldn't get into Harvard, which has a longstanding policy against commercial filming on campus.

David Fincher has made the kind of growth leaps from "The Panic Room" to "Zodiac" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" that Curtis Hanson made from "The River Wild" to "L.A. Confidential" and "Wonder Boys." When directors come of age, they don't just take on genres or literary adaptations: they explode or transform them. "Zodiac" was one of the most original and upsetting of real-life crime films, and "Button" was a one-of-a-kind masterpiece: a lyrical comedy- drama about aging and death that had more life than in it than any other movie last year.

The brick and marble of the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus will double for the brick and marble of Harvard University in "The Social Network," a movie about the creation of Facebook that will shoot here Monday and Tuesday. Top-billed Jesse Eisenberg, the star of the hit "Zombieland," plays Mark Zuckerberg, the computer whiz who came up with the structure for Facebook. Eisenberg will make the trip to Baltimore for shooting on the Hopkins campus. Justin Timberlake, who plays Facebook's founding president, Sean Parker, has not been penciled in for any Hopkins-based scenes.
