About the History Project

 

A COLLABORATION OF THE MEMBERS AND FRIENDS OF THE HARVARD VETERANS ALUMNI ORGNIZATION


This project meets one of the stated goals of the Harvard Veterans Alumni Organization, to research and educate both the Harvard Community and the greater public about the service and sacrifice of 12 generations of Harvard men and women in the militias and military of our country. Indeed the very histories of Harvard and the military have been intertwined since its founding, and with your help this undertaking will enable us to tell that story.
 

The Harvard Veterans History Project is an online collaboration of volunteers who are encouraged to submit notable, verifiable information on the general subject. These submissions will be reviewed for appropriateness and balance, prior to being updated on the website.


We begin with postings in five categories:

  • History Series – Harvard and its Relations with the U.S. Military
  • A List of Notable Harvard Veterans
  • Moments in History – Accounts and links of Harvard-Military matters
  • Harvard’s Memorials and Archives
  • Books of Interest on the general subject


Please don’t hesitate to submit material or make constructive comments, criticisms, and corrections about the format, subject matter, or posted information. All submissions should be made on our contact page. We thank you for your interest and participation in The Harvard Veterans History Project.
