From the President's Message "To the Classes of 1943 and 1944" - "There is no need for me to dwell on the unusual circumstances under which you terminate your Harvard undergraduate careers. The fact that this Album contains the records of two classes and is published in anticipation of a mid-winter exodus of graduating members will stand in Harvard history as a symbol of the changes wrought by a total war." This yearbook contains entries for: Norman Mailer (who entered Harvard at the age of 16), Philip Warren Anderson (Nobel Laureate, Physics), Merton Howard Miller (Nobel Prize in Economics), and Thomas Kuhn (Physicist, Historian, and Philosopher of Science), among many others.
