Two of America’s oldest institutions—Harvard University and the United States military—have histories that are deeply woven together. For more than 350 years, in periods of both peace and conflict, members of the Harvard community have dedicated themselves to military service in a variety of ways. Spanning four centuries, the items presented here illustrate the significant relationship between Harvard and the military at several key moments in Harvard’s history, beginning with the founding of the University and the nation in the colonial period and ending with Harvard’s evolving relationships in the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition will be on view in Pusey Library through February 17.
