The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the Late Cecil Rhodes to cement the friendship between England and America, are the most coveted honors open to American university students, and are awarded on the basis of personality and athletic prowess as well as brilliant scholarship. Treiman was born at Odessa, Russia, and took his A.B. and A.M. degrees at Washington University, specializing in the Classics, and afterward taking up the study of law. It is expected that he will devote part of his study at Oxford to Jewish law.
