Harvard Magazine’s Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellows for the 2008-2009 academic year will be Brittney Moraski ’09 and Christian Flow ’10, who were selected after a competitive evaluation of writing submitted by student applicants for the position. The fellows, who join the editorial staff during the year, contribute to the magazine as Undergraduate columnists and initiate story ideas, write news and feature items, and edit copy before publication.

Moraski, of Bark River, Michigan (in the Upper Peninsula), and Dunster House, concentrates in history and literature, with a focus on gender in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and modern American intellectual history. A past Crimson reporter and current admissions-office tour guide and modern books and manuscripts assistant at Houghton Library, she spent the summer doing thesis research, beginning work with this magazine, continuing her job at Houghton, and traveling to Shanghai.

Flow, of Baltimore and Eliot House, is concentrating in classics, with a focus in both Latin and Greek. A Crimson reporter, he currently helps to cover the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. During the summer, he helped shape young minds as a residential assistant for the Center for Talented Youth program at Johns Hopkins University. He also planned to rediscover exercise, one of his great passions in a former, healthier life. The fellowships are supported by Jonathan J. Ledecky ’79, M.B.A. ’83, and named in honor of his mother.
