Sheridan A. Logan '23. Time-honored treasurer of the class of 1923, you have crossed the wide Missouri to serve Harvard with distinction, as treasurer of the Harvard Club of New York, director of the Harvard Alumni Association, and as cochairman of your 75th Harvard College reunion.

William E. Markus '60. Whether in Pittsburgh or Cambridge, you can be found cheering for Harvard, taking on any assignment for your College, class, and club with energy, enthusiasm, and ability.
