In the CRIMSON of last Thursday a letter was printed, which proposed that a course of lectures be given upon the historical associations of Harvard.

Several months ago a similar communication was received by the CRIMSON showing how interesting such a course of lectures would be. The subject excited some comment at the time, but nothing was done, and the matter dropped.

We believe thoroughly that a course of lectures upon historic Harvard, would be not only of great interest, but exceedingly instructive. There are professors in the Historical Department that have made the history of early New England a subject of special study and research, and who, it is safe to say, are familiar with most of the earlier associations of the University. They are just the men to give such a course of lectures. We feel that the writer of the letter was justified in saying that few students know anything of the founding of their college, or of its growth. We hope now the subject has again been brought forward, it will not be suffered to drop until something is done.
