A history of Harvard football from the first interclass game in 1827 up to the present time is now being written by George Owen '23, and E. H. Dewey '26, instructor in English. The date for publication has not yet been determined but on account of the extent of the book it is doubtful whether the volume will be out before next year.
Although the book is to be primarily a story of Harvard football the growth of the science of football as developed within the past 50 years and the development of the game in America are to be portrayed. It is the object of the editors to revive many old Harvard football personalities and to add local bits of Harvard history wherever it is fitting. Many interesting cuts and illustrations depicting old Harvard scenes will also add to the uniqueness of the book.
