Harvard's Memorial Church was dedicated in 1932 to honor those in the Harvard community who were killed in World War I.⠀ ⠀ Inscribed at the top of the wall of the Memorial Room are the words of Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell, who also donated the church’s bell: “While a bright future beckoned, they freely gave their lives and fondest hopes for us and our allies that we might learn from them courage in peace to spend our lives making a better world for others.”⠀ ⠀ The Memorial Church recognizes the service and sacrifice of all Harvard veterans: The walls of the sanctuary are dedicated to more than 1,000 members of the Harvard community who died in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.⠀ ⠀ “We continue to honor their service, their sacrifice, and their memory,” says Rev. Jonathan L. Walton. ⠀ ⠀ #VeteransDay #VeteransDay2018 #ArmisticeDay100⠀ ⠀ Photo by Jeffrey Blackwell/Memorial Church Communications

Harvard Medical School received its largest gift ever, with the overarching aim of transforming new medical discoveries into patient treatments.⠀ ⠀ The $200 million gift, from the Blavatnik Family Foundation, was announced at a scientific symposium at @harvardmed this week and was hailed for providing key resources at a time of enormous opportunity for medical science.⠀ ⠀ Announcing the donation, Harvard President Larry Bacow described it as an “unprecedented act of generosity and support,” and thanked Blavatnik for his faith that HMS — and the region’s broader life sciences community — can make dreams of dramatic progress in human health become reality.⠀ ⠀ “It’s one thing to dream for oneself, for one’s family and friends, even for one’s community. It’s another thing to dream for all people, to dream for a future in which more lives are improved and saved through the creation and application of knowledge through science,” Bacow said. .

In high school, Nadya Okamoto ’20, co-founded PERIOD. The Menstrual Movement, which distributes menstrual products to women in need. Since founding @periodmovement in 2014, Okamoto has helped expand the nonprofit to more than 230 campus chapters around the nation and abroad. The non-profit has distributed enough products for more than 380,000 periods to those in need. ⠀ ⠀ Okamoto's new book, “Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement,” was recently released. She wrote much of the work at Hemenway Gym and the Schlesinger Library, before finishing it during last year’s Wintersession. ⠀ ⠀ “I love public speaking, traveling, and meeting new people. I don’t know if I want a future in politics or a nonprofit or the corporate world. But I am drawn to studying social studies because it’s all the subjects I like in one. I wanted to learn how to think critically, and it’s a small concentration where you get a lot of individual attention,” says Okamoto.⠀ ⠀ Photo: Jon Chase/Harvard Staff Photographer

Yesterday @arnold_arboretum was transported to the 19th century as Columbia Pictures filmed a scene for their take on Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 “Little Women.” ⠀ ⠀ Film crews arrived Tuesday to begin the transformation. Paved roads were turned to dirt, lined with antique gas lanterns and iron filigree park furniture, and traveled by horse-drawn carriages. On Wednesday, costumed men wearing top hats and ladies in Victorian petticoat dresses strolled along the tree-lined path.⠀ ⠀ Filming lasted one day and took place on a segment of Meadow Road. On hand were the film’s director and writer, Greta Gerwig, and stars Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet, and Florence Pugh. The Arboretum is one of several locations in the Boston area being used as set pieces for the movie.⠀ ⠀ “We are honored and thrilled to be filming ‘Little Women’ in the beautiful Arnold Arboretum, a great Boston treasure since the days of Louisa May Alcott,” said Amy Pascal, the film’s producer. .

Remy the cat lives nearly a mile away, but he spends much of his time on the Harvard campus. “He has been in student dorms, at parties, attended lectures, and taken photos with tourists in Harvard Yard,” says his owner, Cambridge resident Sarah Watton. The 4-year-old orange tabby even has a Facebook page started by his friends at the Barker Center. ⠀ ⠀ Remy's family says his penchant to wander started young. They initially tried walking him on a leash but by the time he turned 1, they gave up trying to stop his excursions.⠀ ⠀ Remy took off for a 3-week stretch in late August, worrying his family and his Facebook followers. After his reappearance, his family grounded him, but now his paws are back on the streets, to the delight of his Facebook followers and all his Harvard buddies.⠀ ⠀ Photos: Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer
