A History of Harvard

by Alfred K. Moe


Alfred K. Moe wrote of this entertaining volume in 1896:
“In the short sketch of the College in these pages the endeavor has been to show that Harvard is not so serious an institution as some may have tried to make you believe.”

He served as the U.S. Consul in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, from 1902-1904. After this, he went on to serve in consular roles in Dublin, Ireland and Bordeaux, France from 1904-1910. He passed away in 1910. His papers are held by the University of California, Berkeley, Bancroft Library.

This new edition is dedicated to Peter Gibbon, Harvardian and distinguished educator.
