Moore to Lead 134th Crimson Guard

Paper elects its leaders; other top spots go to Hernandez, Lee

Kristina M. Moore ’08 will lead the newly-elected 134th Guard of The Harvard Crimson, the paper’s outgoing president announced today.

Moore, a history and literature concentrator from Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y., and Dunster House, has chaired the paper’s Arts Board since February. She will assume the president’s post at the start of the spring semester.

The paper’s outgoing editors elected their successors early this morning, and the president of the 133rd Guard, William C. Marra ’07, announced the results to the staff this afternoon.

“I am delighted with the quality of the leadership at The Crimson next year,” Marra said today. “The executives will lead the building with honesty, integrity, and a sense of purpose in the coming year.”

Moore will be joined on The Crimson’s masthead by the managing editor-elect, Javier C. Hernandez ’08, and the business manager-elect, Roger R. Lee ’08.

The Crimson, founded in 1873, is the only daily newspaper in Cambridge, Mass., and the oldest continuously published daily college newspaper. It chooses its leaders through an election process known as “the turkey shoot” in which all outgoing editors are invited to participate. A successful candidate must receive at least 75 percent of the vote.

The other newly-elected leaders include:

Evan H. Jacobs '08 and Anton S. Troianovski '08, associate managing editors

Marianne F. Kaletzky '08 and Abraham J. Riesman '08, arts chairs

Jordan A. Comins '09 and Lukas Toth '09, design chairs

Adam M. Guren '08 and Drew M. Trombly '08, editorial chairs

M. Aidan Kelly '08 and Aria S. K. Laskin '08, magazine chairs

Alexander E. Blank '09 and Matthew S. Fasman '08, information technology chairs

Alexandra C. Bell '08 and Laura C. McKiernan '08, photography chairs
