Between the 1920's and early 1960's Yale had an unwritten 10% quota on Jewish students. Beginning in 1809 there were Jewish students at Yale however they were few in number and easily incorporated into a generally tolerant community. But by the 1920's 10% of undergrads were Jewish and the Jewish applicant pool was expanding. Yale did not want to be seen as a Jewish college and thus loose the patronage of the upper class to Harvard.
