Harvard Baseball’s Complex Racial History: William Clarence Matthews and the Southern Road Trips

Former Harvard president Charles Eliot once said, “This year I'm told the team did well because one pitcher had a fine curveball. I understand that a curve ball is thrown with a deliberate attempt to deceive. Surely this is not an ability we should want to foster at Harvard.” While Eliot’s understanding of off-speed pitches may have missed the strike zone, he was correct to highlight that the baseball team during his tenure had a skewed moral compass. For some players on the team, the curves off the field proved more troublesome than those on the diamond.

Should Bill Bartley have to leave the neighborhood, he will take a piece of its history with him. Yet his departure would be but one of many, part of a long, gradual erosion of the landmarks that have distinguished Harvard Square for many years. And as the face of the Square changes, small business owners have no choice but to confront a version of the neighborhood’s future that may no longer save space for them.

Rugby's Recruiting Success and Its 2018 Run to the NIRA Championship Game

This season, the Harvard women’s rugby team has proven it deserves attention. The program has continuously been among the best in the NCAA, and its 2018 campaign showed no change.
