Harvard in Chicago
The Harvard Club of Chicago, the oldest continually operating Harvard club in existence, celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2007. The year-long series of events—including publication of a book outlining its history and longstanding relationship with the University (see “Harvard in Chicago,”)—was capped off on November 9 with a day of symposiums and a dinner with University president Drew Faust. Meanwhile, the club continues to contribute to the social good through its Adopt-a-School Program (established in 1989) with Walter Payton College Preparatory High School, through which more than 200 Harvard volunteers—“Harvols”—play various roles.
