I congratulate the Harvard CRIMSON on resuming publication. Both as a former editor and as President of the University, I take this occasion to send you all good wishes. I have always considered that my connection with the CRIMSON as an undergraduate was an important part of my general education, though the role I played as editor was a very minor one.
Since I have been President of the University my relations with the CRIMSON staff have always been of the pleasantest. Without exception the editorial boards have endeavored to hold to the highest standards of journalism and promote the best interests of the University. Those who carry on in the postwar years have the responsibility of presenting impartially and fully events of interest to the Harvard public. To them is committed an important trust. I have the confidence that the CRIMSON in the future will fulfill its obligations to the same high degree as in the past.
