About this product
- DescriptionOpen this book and step into the storied corridors of America's oldest university; encounter the historic landmarks and curiosities; and among them, meet the famous dropouts and former students, the world-class scholars, eccentrics, and prodigies who have given the institution its incomparable character. An alphabetical compendium of short but substantial essays about Harvard University - its undergraduate college and nine professional schools - this volume traverses the gamut of Harvardiana from Aab and Academic Freedom to X Cage, Yard, and Z List. In between are some two hundred entries written by three Harvard veterans who bring to the task over 125 years of experience within the university. The entries range from essential facts to less interesting ephemera, from the Arld Arboretum designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to the peculiar medical specimens of the Warren Museum; from Arts, Athletics, and Aviation to Towers and Tuition, from the very real environs (Cambridge, Charles River, and Quincy Street) to the Harvard of Hollywood and fiction.
- Author BiographyJohn T. Bethell is the Senior Editor of The American Scholar and a Contributing Editor at Harvard Magazine, where he was Editor from 1966 to 1995. Richard M. Hunt is a former Harvard University Marshal and Senior Lecturer in Social Studies. Robert Shenton, now deceased, is the former Secretary of Harvard's Governing Boards.
