Wheeeeeeere's Johnny?

In 1977, Harvard's Hasty Pudding named Johnny Carson their Man of the Year, and hosted him on campus for a night as part of the ceremony. While there, Carson spoke in front of cameras, and made a remark about how much the award meant to him... because it had been ages since he had last had sex in a college dorm. It may have been while he was having breakfast the next morning. I know it's on video. I've seen it. But I can't find the clip. Can you?

Rothko's Harvard Murals

I'm having trouble finding color photos of the Rothko Harvard murals in their original settings (shot to show placement/context within the rooms and amid their furnishings, rather than showing details in the paintings themselves). If not on the web, is there a book containing such photos?

Bur.ri.tos / Ve.ri.tas

A few years ago, I saw someone walking around in a shirt with the Harvard seal on it, except that the "VE RI TAS" part had been replaced with "BUR RI TOS." I would very much like to purchase this shirt or one like it, but can't find it online. Any leads?

That's Not Harvard College; That's Night School. Say It.

Interviewing candidates for teaching position in the Boston area and we have a question: We've had several people note on their resumes that they attended Harvard. During interviews, some disclosed more specifically that they had taken a few courses at Harvard Extension but they were not accepted degree-seeking students at either the Extension School or Harvard College. The search committee isn't overly fussed about this but it got us to wondering: is it strictly ethical for a person who wasn't accepted to Harvard and wasn't enrolled in either a Harvard College or Extension School degree program state on their resume under education, "Harvard?"

The Harvard Classics

Dad has a bookcase of Harvard Classics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvard_Classics) his dad bought in 1910. Would like to give them to someone or an organization. They're not too rare; plenty on ebay. I'm googled out. Don't want to throw them away. Thanks.

What should I do with a half-day in Boston?

I'll have what's more-or-less equivalent to an eleven hour layover in Boston on Wednesday, Feb. 17 from around 6am to around 5pm. I'll be on foot and starting from the Boston Sheraton/Prudential Center. Bearing in mind that I'll either be pulling a carryon or need somewhere to stash it, what should I do with my time there? Note also that I'm an undergrad elsewhere, so if there are any neat events going on on campus (especially MIT or Harvard), I probably wouldn't stand out TOO much attending. I'm also up for meeting local MeFites. Thanks!

Harvard References in Word?

We're meant to do all of our University assignments with Harvard Referencing. Easy enough. However I've grown used to using Word's system of managing references and it does all the updating itself for any changes I make - has anyone got any ideas how to get Word 2007 (or 2003 / XP) to do the referencing? My Google-fu has failed me so far.

looking for letters

Harvard students, staff, faculty & visitors: Where's the good lettering? I'm looking for recommendations for the best engraved lettering, printing, calligraphy and other lettering on your campus in preparation for an upcoming visit. The type of stuff I am talking about: like the inscriptions on the Harvard Gates, or the Eric Gill piece downstairs in the memorial chapel. Any suggestions? For that matter, any typographic or chirographic must-sees in Boston and Cambridge overall?

stoned at harvard

Who is responsible for the wonderful type engraved in stone seen on gated walls around the Harvard campus? I am not talking about architectural lettering, but about the several quotes engraved in slabs of smooth stone and mounted in the walls separating various parts of the campus. The work looks contemporary, or at least very well-cared-for.
