THE STATUE OF THREE LIES 📁☀️

  1. JOHN HARVARD STATUE
    John Harvard▪️Founder▪️1638
  2. No known likenesses of John Harvard were available. The model for this sculpture was student Sherman Hoar.
  3. 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.
  4. Harvard was founded in 1636, not 1638. The name was changed to Harvard when Harvard left them an endowment and his library.
  5. There is more to this story, but I'm just cleaning out drafts today.
