Transcript Harvard University Harvard University is many places and many things. It is the land and buildings in Cambridge's old Yard where General George Washington's troops were quartered. It is an observatory in New Mexico. It is a complex of world-famous professional schools in Boston and Cambridge. It is libraries and laboratories and classrooms and playing fields on the river. It is a tradition and a point of view. Harvard College is one part — the central part — of Harvard University. It is the original, historic Harvard. The young men & women who represent Harvard on the playing fields in intercollegiate athletics are the men and women of Harvard College. Harvard is the oldest college in America. Sixteen years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, the College was established in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. On Oct. 28, 1636, the General Court agreed to give L400 — a quarter of the Colony's tax levy for that year — "towards a schoale or colledge." By the next fall, the first Board of Overseers had been appointed, and its six magistrates and six ministers assigned "to take order" for the new collegiate foundation. The first freshmen — a dozen in all — began their classes in the summer of 1638. Possibly those first freshmen met John Harvard of Charlestown, a young Puritan minister, who died that fall, leaving his books and half his estate to the college. In gratitude, the General Court gave the college his name. Today, the College enrollment of about 6,200 students is international in character. There are students from every state and, because of the University's world-wide reputation, from many foreign countries as well. The diversity of the Harvard student body is more than a matter of geography. Students come from every kind of social, economic, and occupational background, from farm, small town, metropolis, and suburb; from income groups ranging from the poorest to the richest. This great diversity is one of Harvard's most valuable attributes. Harvard's primary concern is the liberal education of the undergraduates. It tries to increase breadth and perspective, understanding and judgment. It is concerned with values and standards and points of view. Some 70 percent of Harvard seniors go on to graduate school for the professions — medicine, law, university teaching, and business. Harvard has grown with the country. The library in Harvard Hall held nearly 20,000 volumes in 1815; a quarter-century later, 41,000 volumes were moved into the new Gore Hall — the largest and most valuable collection of books. In 1971, the University Library passed the 8,000,000 mark. Throughout its long history Harvard has received the support of generous benefactors. Today, it has the largest endowment of any private university in the world (reaching the one billion dollar mark in 1965), and its impressive commitments in teaching and research are maintained and extended because alumni and friends demonstrate their belief in the Harvard education with continuous support. Harvard's great resources help attract an outstanding faculty — and the faculty is the heart of any college or university.
