Duplicate Copies: A note to readers

Effective with the September-October issue, Harvard Magazine will consolidate mailing of the new issue to households where multiple degree holders are receiving separate copies to their address on file with the University. The single issue will be addressed to both degree holders. We are doing so for two reasons. First, paper, printing, and especially postage costs have increased rapidly, effectively increasing the magazine’s operating deficit over the past two years—and periodical postal rates are scheduled to increase sharply every six months for the foreseeable future. To sustain service to all readers, it is a prudent first step to reduce duplicate mailings. Second, doing so is more environmentally beneficial.

This change will not end delivery of separate copies to degree holders using a parental mailing address on file with the University.

Readers who wish to continue receiving separate copies at the same address can email your request to: harvard_magazine@harvard.edu.

Our Editor’s Highlights email, delivered monthly, is your digital guide to the print magazine and features stories from the latest issue.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
