While voters across the nation cast their votes on hotly-contested national races, a resounding majority of Massachusetts residents voted yesterday to legalize the use of medical marijuana.

In an office full of ant models, butterflies in frames, and books on Nabokov, it doesn’t take much questioning to figure out what OEB Professor Naomi E. Pierce’s greatest passion is: entomology. Having conducted research on insects for decades, Pierce’s work warranted the University to build her a greenhouse atop the Museum of Comparative Zoology laboratories. There she keeps ants who hail from all over the world. Rich with stories, Pierce sat down with The Harvard Crimson to share stories about her fear of bugs, her husband and fellow OEB professor Andrew Berry, and even a brief bit about how the similar spellings of “organismic” and “orgasmic” warrant a good enough reason to consider changing her department’s name.

With the presidential candidates all over our TV screens and newspapers in the final weeks before the election, it's easy to forget that they once got their humble beginnings here at Harvard. Before the big fame hit, Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama were already no strangers to The Crimson. As early as 1994, Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School alum Romney was featured in a Crimson profile that shines some light on his current race. But even before then, Obama, another Law School alum, was already gracing the pages of The Crimson. Beginning from his time as a student, all the way until he became President of the United States, let's take a trip through The Crimson's early coverage of Obama!
Barack Obama wins three to one against Mitt Romney among those voters who say that health care is their primary concern, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health learned. Overall, with voters ranking health care as the second most important factor in determining their presidential choice for the first time since 1992, Obama’s lead among that category of voters may prove significant.
