This Harvard postcard comes from Arnold who lives in Texas and who is responsible for half of my American postcards. 😀

Harvard University, sometimes simply refer to as Harvard, is a private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Its history, influence and wealth have made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Established in 1636 by the Massachusetts legislature and soon thereafter named for John Harvard (its first benefactor), Harvard is the United States’ oldest institution of higher learning. Eight U.S. presidents have been graduates, and 144 Nobel Laureates have been student, faculty, or staff affiliates. Harvard is also the alma mater of sixty-two living billionaires, the most in the country. The Harvard University Library is also the largest academic library in the United States, and one of the largest in the world.
