New Ledecky Fellows

Nathan J. Heller and Amelia E. Lester

Harvard Magazine's Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellows for this academic year are third-year student Nathan J. Heller and senior Amelia E. Lester. The Fellows, who join the editorial staff during the year, contribute to the magazine in numerous ways, including their service as "Undergraduate" columnists. Heller, of San Francisco, a resident of Currier House, concentrates in history and literature. A member of the Crimson staff, he has most recently reported on Cambridge and on the effects of post-9/11 legislation on the University, and has written three articles for Harvard Magazine in the past five issues. This past summer, he interned at the Atlantic Monthly. Lester, of Sydney, Australia, is the magazine's first international Fellow. The Adams House resident also works on the Crimson, where she is a columnist and past editor of the weekly magazine supplement. She is concentrating in English and American literature and language. In keeping with her multicontinental status, Lester served as the Let's Go resident correspondent in Paris during the summer. Support for the Fellowship is provided by Jonathan J. Ledecky '79, M.B.A. '83, who has named it in honor of his mother (please see "A Magnificent Gift").
