THE STATUE OF THREE LIES 📁☀️
- •JOHN HARVARD STATUEJohn Harvard▪️Founder▪️1638
- •No known likenesses of John Harvard were available. The model for this sculpture was student Sherman Hoar.
- •John Harvard wasn't the founder of Harvard, he just left them a lot of stuff. They say now he's "one" of the founders.
- •Harvard was founded in 1636, not 1638. The name was changed to Harvard when Harvard left them an endowment and his library.
- •There is more to this story, but I'm just cleaning out drafts today.
