Topic: Harvard Military School


  
  Harvard University - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Harvard has the world's third largest library collection (after the British Library and the Library of Congress)[6], and the largest financial endowment of any academic institution, standing at $25.9 billion as of 2005, and the second largest endowment for a non-profit organization behind only the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Harvard has a friendly rivalry with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology which dates back to 1900, when a merger of the two schools was frequently mooted and at one point officially agreed upon (ultimately canceled by Massachusetts courts).
Harvard is governed by two boards, the President and Fellows of Harvard College, also known as the Harvard Corporation and founded in 1650, and the Harvard Board of Overseers.

 Boston.com / News / Education / Higher education / Military recruiters banned
Harvard Law School will once again ban military recruiters because of the Pentagon's policy on gays in the military, the school's dean announced yesterday, the day after a federal appeals court blocked enforcement of the federal law that forced schools to allow the visits.
Harvard had long barred military recruiters from formal campus visits because the Pentagon's ban on gays violated the school's nondiscrimination policies.
Like many other law schools nationwide, Harvard was forced to allow the recruiter visits two years ago, when the government invoked a law known as the Solomon Amendment and threatened to cut the university's federal funding.

 Harvard Law School Bars Military Recruitment : Houston Indymedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Harvard had forbidden any recruiter from campus — military or otherwise — that couldn't sign off on the school's nondiscrimination policy.
Harvard, like other schools, said the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy was discriminatory, because it forbids overt gays and lesbians from serving in the armed forces.
In 2002, the Pentagon told Harvard and other schools that the government would begin enforcing a law, called the Solomon Amendment, which permits the Defense Department to deny funds to colleges and universities that restrict military recruiting or ROTC on campus.

 The Harvard Guide: Did You Know?
Harvard is perhaps best-known because of its long and venerable history.
Located on the southern edge of "Cow-yard Row" and soon distinguished as the "Colledge Yard," this tract became the nucleus of present-day Harvard Yard and remains at the southern end of the Old Yard (the area west of Thayer, University, and Weld halls).
The first medical instruction given to Harvard students in 1781 and the founding of the Medical School in 1782 made it a university in fact as well as name.

 Harvard Gazette: ROTC commissions ten Harvard officers
Harvard University's ROTC ceremony was held on the steps of the Memorial Church inside Tercentenary Theatre.
Ten Harvard College seniors swore to support and defend the U.S. Constitution Wednesday (June 9) as they were commissioned as officers in the U.S. armed forces during a ceremony in Harvard's Tercentenary Theatre.
Speaking as both a citizen and as Harvard's president, Summers thanked the new officers for the duty they are about to perform and congratulated them on their accomplishments over the past four years.

 Military Recruiting: The Lawsuits
At issue is the Pentagon's decision, in 2002, to reinterpret the 1996 Solomon Amendment so the federal government would cut off research funding to universities if their law schools in any way limit recruiting of students — by holding interviews off campus, for example, or in informal venues, rather than through the schools' placement facilities.
It is a means to enforce an underlying policy on eligibility for military service — the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy — that is offensive to human dignity and to principles of nondiscrimination." The University's pre-2002 practices, he noted, conformed to the letter and spirit of the amendment as the Pentagon then interpreted it.
In pursuit of the "common goal: that before long...the nation's military will benefit from the talents and education of all citizens without regard to their sexual orientation," Summers wrote, the University prefers persuasion to litigation.

 Harvard-Westlake | History
Harvard School for Boys, a military school with 42 students, was established in 1900 by Grenville C. Emery in a barley field at what is now the corner of Western Avenue and Venice Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The School was purchased by Sydney Temple, whose daughter, Helen Temple Dickinson, was headmistress until 1966, when Westlake became a non-profit institution.
After a plan to reestablish the school on a site near Westwood was abandoned because of the worsening Depression, the school was moved to the defunct Hollywood Country Club on Coldwater Canyon in 1937.

 The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Law School Will Allow Official Recruiting Visits by Military   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The move, detailed to the school in a memo sent Friday by HLS Dean Robert C. Clark, came after the Air Force determined in May that the school’s ban on employers who fail to adhere to a nondiscrimination policy was not in compliance with a federal statute.
Military recruiters have been able to gain access to the Law School’s campus for the past several years by the invitation of the Harvard Law School Veterans Association, an HLS student group.
Many other law schools had previously changed their policy toward military recruiters as a result of the 1998 reviews under the Solomon Amendment, and Stone said he thought that about 15 law schools would be affected by the new reviews, which were completed this year by the Army and the Air Force.

 New Georgia Encyclopedia: Navy Supply Corps School
Twenty-five officer-students constituted the first class of the Navy Supply Corps School of Application in 1921, located at the Navy Department in Washington, D.C. After just three years the school was closed, and for the next ten years supply officers learned their profession at sea from senior supply officers and correspondence courses.
The site had been used as a school since the 1860s, first for the University of Georgia's University High School, then as a Confederate military school, and at the end of the Civil War, a Federal garrison.
The normal school was taken over by the university and became known as Coordinate College but was used only as dormitories for freshmen and sophomore women.

 Harvard Law School allows military recruiters
This academic year, for the first time since this School adopted a policy prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, the U.S. military will be allowed access to the facilities and services of the Law School’s Office of Career Services (“OCS”).
In the end, the decision to allow military recruiters on campus was necessary because of the extraordinary impact a prohibition of recruitment would have had on the University.
The Law School condemns the military’s discriminatory practices and remains committed to the principle of equal opportunity for all persons, without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

 The American Thinker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Even better (or worse, depending on your perspective), his MBA is from Harvard Business School, where postgraduate management training was invented in the early part of the last century, and which to many stands as a symbol of the good, the bad, and the ugly faces of modern management.
Harvard MBAs indisputably lead more major corporations, receive higher starting salaries fresh out of school, and carry with them more élan and glamour than the graduates of any rival business schools — facts which do not necessarily lead to admiration and love.
A second broad and important lesson the President learned at Harvard Business School is to embrace a finite number of strategic goals, and to make each one of those goals serve as many desirable ends as possible.

The Law School’s anti-discrimination policy, adopted in 1979, provides that any employer that uses the services of OCS to recruit at the school must sign a statement indicating that that it does not discriminate on various bases, including sexual orientation.
The military retained full access to our students (and vice versa) through the good offices of the Harvard Law School Veterans Association, which essentially took the place of OCS in enabling interviews to occur.

 Harvard to allow military recruiters - Education - MSNBC.com
Before it was enforced, numerous law schools denied the military formal recruiting access because they said the government’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy on gays in the military violates the schools’ nondiscrimination guidelines for recruiters.
A group of Harvard faculty planned to file a brief Wednesday to the Supreme Court urging that the law be overturned, as did a separate consortium of law schools.
Last week, three law schools, including New York Law School, were listed in the federal register as ineligible for federal funds for denying full cooperation to military recruiters, according to Kent Greenfield, a Boston College law professor active in the case opposing the law.

 BCSIA - Publication - War on Terrorism Will Compel Revisions to Posse Comitatus
Assuming that the military forces serve a supporting and supplementary role, working in conjunction with law enforcement authorities, prohibitions against military involvement in anti-terror operations are generally moot—or even irrelevant.
Because military troops (including the National Guard) always serve a “secondary” role in these limited deployments, neither replacing local police nor enforcing civil laws, such activities are within the limits of Posse Comitatus.
Second, and perhaps ironically, even if the military were in violation of Posse Comitatus, the unprecedented crisis created by September 11 invoked de facto the handful of statutory exemptions that authorize military involvement during emergencies.

 HLS : Harvard Law School Launches Nuremberg Trials Project
The Harvard Law School Library has launched a new website, the Nuremberg Trials Project, devoted to analysis and digitization of documents relating to the Nuremberg Trials.
Known as the Medical Case or the Doctors' Trial, Case 1 was held in 1946-1947 and involved 23 defendants accused of organizing and participating in war crimes and crimes against humanity in the form of harmful or fatal medical experiments and procedures inflicted on both civilians and prisoners of war.
The three largest groups of documents are trial documents for the 12 NMT trials and the IMT trial, trial transcripts for the twelve NMT trials and the IMT trial, and evidence file documents (the photostats, typescripts, and evidence analyses from which the prosecution, and occasionally defendants, drew their exhibits).

 The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Law School To Cooperate With Military Recruiters
A federal appellate panel in Philadelphia ruled last year that the Solomon Amendment “requires law schools to express a message that is incompatible with their educational objectives” and therefore violates the schools’ free-speech rights.
Harvard is not a member of FAIR, and Summers has said that the University will not file a suit against the federal government challenging the Solomon Amendment.
With Harvard facing the potential loss of its federal grants, amounting to 15 percent of its total budget, Kagan wrote in her e-mail, “I regret making this exception to our antidiscrimination policy” and reiterated her opposition to the “don’t ask, don’t tell” protocol.

The Harvard Law School is not a member of FAIR, but will be filing its own friend-of-the-court brief as part of the FAIR case.
The law schools contend that the Solomon Amendment requires them to express a message which is incompatible with their educational objectives, and therefore violates the law schools’ free-speech rights.

 Washingtonpost.com: At Height of Vietnam, Bush Picks Guard
His last job before he returned to the East to attend Harvard Business School, as a social worker helping poor children, was arranged by his father after George W. drunkenly confronted him one night and challenged him to a fight.
But Harvard offered the beginnings of a self-discipline – his mother called it "structure" – that was to propel him back to Texas with an ambition to build his own future.
John Scribner, director of the Texas Military Forces Museum in Austin, said it was only natural that the Guard would have publicized Bush's service with special ceremonies and press releases.
