The Harvard Corporation released the names of the nine members of Harvard's presidential search committee, a secretive group of people who will meet through the fall and winter to choose the successor to Neil L. Rudenstine.
As in the last presidential search, the committee is comprised of members of both Harvard governing boards: the six Corporation members other than Rudenstine and three members of the Board of Overseers.
As in the past, the group does not include faculty or students, although members will consult the greater Harvard community through letters and meetings.
These powerful men and women work mostly behind-the-scenes, staying out of the public spotlight.
But when their work is done, these seven men and two women will have chosen Harvard's first leader of the 21st century.
