Founded in 1873, The Crimson is the student newspaper of Harvard University, the oldest continuously published daily college newspaper in the United States, and the only breakfast-table daily publication of Cambridge, Mass. It is proud to serve a wide range of Harvard affiliates, Cambridge residents, and national readers.

The Crimson selects its leaders through an election process called the Turkey Shoot, in which all outgoing members of the masthead are invited to participate. A candidate for a senior leadership position must receive at least 75 percent of the vote to be elected.
