This evening at eight o'clock in the Fogg Lecture Room, Mr. J. G. Thorp '79 will speak on "The Charles River." The lecture is the second of those arranged by the Committee on Reception of Students.
Mr. Thorp has been a prominent citizen of Cambridge since his graduation from Harvard in 1879. He has made a specialty of amateur photography and in connection with this work has made a careful study of the upper Charles, near Riverside and Norumbega Park.
His lecture will deal mostly with this part of the river, and will be freely illustrated by lantern slides which Mr. Thorp has made. The address should be of particular interest to those men who are not familiar with the surroundings of Cambridge.
