You Can Always Tell a Harvard Man


A riotous parade of historical facts and antidotes about the formation and evolution of Harvard from 1636 – 1962.  Always successful in finding an obscure point or contributing a twist in perception, Bissell tells the story of Harvard's presidents, student life, curriculum, the campus and its buildings, music, sports, restaurants and foods (including the original recipe for Harvard beets) with meticulous attention to detail and irreverent wit.  Also a Harvard graduate, Bissell chooses to focus less on Harvard's brightest stars or most notable names (such as Harvard graduates Emerson, Thoreau, and Horatio Alger), but more on the idiosyncrasies that make us human and out of which greatness still arises.
