Photos and randomness[edit]

User A mcmurray, your professionalism is appreciated. Thank you for the work you've done on the page. Please offer input on a photo subject which you feel is more desirable for the top of the article than Harmilda the cow. Suggestions are sought and welcome. - Cosmo1976

Thanks. I think the Harmilda image is iconic for Harvard, it's fine at the top I would say. I added some images because I was in Harvard today but the library one isn't good, I was driving by it and had passed it. I'll probably be back there sometime and take some other stuff that might be a bit better. Don't forget to sign your posts with four tildes btw (~~~~).A mcmurray 02:58, 12 January 2007 (UTC)


I'm glad to see interest in the Harvard, Illinois page. (Thanks to Mr. Sadler, too. Nice to see you here). I value the presence of others because I believe an article is better when it's the work of a team. Cosmo1976 03:50, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. I agree with the brighter photos. Yesterday was just so gloomy, not a good photography day, but I was there nonetheless, so I took some. A mcmurray 18:05, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Recent edit[edit]

A mcmurray: your most recent revision (March 5th) is uncharachteristically imperfect. It has a spacing problem and a missing word at the povertly line statistics. I'd fix it but I'm not sure if the missing word should be "under" or "over". I'm also not sure if other things are left undone that you plan to address. Will you please revisit this? Thanks.

I think you are referring to this revision, it wasn't by me, I hadn't edited the article since 13 February. But I fixed it anyway. A mcmurray (talkcontribs) 17:13, 6 March 2007 (UTC): )

New name, same editor[edit]

Hey, I have tons of photos from Milk Days that I am slowly uploading to Commons, see Commons Milk Days cat. I have already added some of those photos to more relevant articles, such as Jesse White Tumblers and Minneapolis-Moline. I think we need to do a separate article on Harvard Milk Days, the event is notable enough to merit inclusion in the project. IvoShandor 12:09, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Why are there two Notable residents sections in this article?[edit]

Why does this article have a section titled "Notable natives or residents" in the middle and "Notable residents" at the bottom. Shouldn't these two sections be merged? Starrymessenger (talk) 03:18, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Can we have some explanation of Milk Days, please[edit]

The purpose of WP is convey knowledge, not to tease people about their lack of knowledge. At the moment this article implies that Milk Days are an important part of what makes Harvard tick, by showing photographs. But it resolutely conveys absolutely no information about what the Milk Day is, who celebrates it, why it is celebrated, or anything. Now that might be obvious to people from Harvard, but it isn't to the rest of us. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 11:47, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
