He was possibly at the University of Nebraska too. Ten Commandments and One More in Modern Foreign Language Teaching (JSTOR link) from The Modern Language Journal (vol. 20, no. 5, February 1936) is attributed to "Harry Kurz; University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska". Kurz appears to have several other papers published in the same journal. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 20:07, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
