RADCLIFFE ALBUM: A GREAT DAY IN RADCLIFFE YARD

On May 29, Radcliffe Day, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received the Radcliffe Medal, presented annually to “an individual who has had a transformative impact on society.” Before Justice Ginsburg delivered a speech about her historic career, lunch was served (salmon! again!) under a tent in Radcliffe Yard. On my right is the spectacular poet Anne Pierson Wiese, and to my left is sublime novelist and journalist V.V. Ganeshananthan.

RADCLIFFE ALBUM: MURAL SPEAKS! IN HARVARD YARD

On April 14th my stellar Research Partner Harvard Senior Ashford King and I spent an ebullient day on the Science Center Plaza promoting awareness of the diversity of the urban Midwest by offering the international Harvard populace the chance to step up to the “Translation Station” and convert the classic American poem “The Red Wheelbarrow” into some of the 140 languages spoken in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  The morning began with me pushing a wheelbarrow borrowed from Cambridge Landscaping from Byerly Hall to the event site. Ashford is pictured here playing the guitar during a musical interlude. I am tapping the perfectly tuned buoy.
