The Undergraduate Angle

Two seniors will serve as Harvard Magazine's 2000-2001 Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellows, writing columns and news stories, conducting research, and performing other editorial tasks. Elizabeth A. Gudrais (left), from Red Wing, Minnesota, and Adams House, is a Crimson executive editor and has also worked on the Harvard Model Congress Europe. A literature concentrator, she has already written “Right Now” articles for the magazine and spent the summer as a reporting intern at Newsday. Kirstin E. Butler, of Geneva, New York, and Currier House, is concentrating in the history of art. During the summer, she was an intern at the Whitney Museum of American Art and traveled to Germany to conduct research for her thesis. Earlier in her Harvard years, she was an associate editor for the Let's Go travel guides, and an intern at this magazine. The new fellows were photographed in front of the Science Center - more or less halfway between their Houses.
