Martinis Still Cold at New York's Harvard Club

Letters to the Editors

By Jonathan Piel

To the editors:

I respectfully distance myself from my friend Lloyd P. Zuckerberg and other members of the group of Harvard Club of New York City members who “...still resent the way club leaders handled the expansion” (News, “Controversial Addition to New York Harvard Club To Be Dedicated,” Nov. 5). We fought a good fight, which we lost. I see no point in harboring resentment. After all, the martinis are still cold, the squash balls still bounce true and one can enter and leave by the old entrance.

In any event, a positive outcome of the confrontation appears to be a breach in the insularity that characterized the Club’s management in its behavior toward the membership.
