Revamped Harvard Monthly Features Santayana Article

Hay, Berman Launch New Venture on Wednesday

Revived after twenty years of inactivity, the Harvard Monthly will feature an article by George Santayana '86, one of its former editors, in an issue scheduled for publication Wednesday. Santayana's article, entitled "An Apology for Being Precocious," is a dissertation on the first editors of the Monthly.

In addition, the 36-page magazine will carry theatre and book reviews as well as short stories, articles, and poems by undergraduates. The policy of the Monthly will be to run as many photographs as possible, and the first issue will include cuts of Santayana, the first Monthly Board, and the Harvard Square in 1886.

The Monthly staff is made up of John Hay '39, president, Herschel Berman '38, managing editor, George Haskins '36, graduate editor, Jack L. Saltonstall, Jr. '38, business manager, and Alan S. Gelsmer '38, W. Sherman Gifford, Jr. '39, Sanford R. Gifford, Jr. '38, Norman W. Johnson '38, Alexander P. Saxton '40, and Charles M. Sargeant '38.
