JOHN HARVARD

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

We know that John Harvard was baptised on November 29, 1607. By an application of History and elementary Arithmetic to this fact, we conclude that he was born on November 26, 1607, for in those days children were baptised when three days old. The evidence is purely circumstantial, but it is strong enough to warrant a celebration in honor of John Harvard on the three hundred and sixth anniversary of his birth. And so the Memorial Society, whose purpose it is to preserve Harvard traditions and records, has planned a short gathering in the Delta by Memorial Hall tomorrow morning to honor the memory of the man who established Harvard University. It is quite fitting that all loyal Harvard men should stop a moment in their rush to do brief homage to him who made possible all that Harvard has meant to them.
