A Harvard Reunion for Civil War Vets

Every week, The Crimson publishes a selection of articles that were printed in our pages in years past. June 18, 1914: Class of 1864 Holds Reunion The 50th anniversary of their graduation has brought back to the reunion in Phillips Brooks House today nearly all of the 36 living members of the Class of 1864. There were 99 men in '64 who completed their four years and 44 who were associated with the class for a part of that time. The large number of men who did not graduate is accounted for by the fact that many of them went to war. Forty-one members of the class, either graduate or associate, took part in the Rebellion—35 in the Union Army and six in the Confederate Army. Of the 99 graduates, almost every one took a further degree than the A.B., and more than a third studied medicine or law.
