You’re basing your strong opinions on a short article? And you’ve already decided Harvard is in the wrong?
It’s the FR way.
I’m basing my “strong” opinion on the existing marketplace for historical documents.
Harvard is like most elites: very, very cheap.
Harvard is always wrong, that is established fact.
They should pony up the appraised value and these documents are definitely historic enough. I bet this guy was either dumb as a rock or brilliant enough to make today’s schools and not just black students look like morons.
Either way would be racist I guess. Maybe Harvard will buy them and burn them?
“The FR Way” would be to drill down a little bit before badmouthing your fellow FReepers. Please look at the story I linked in #47, it has a lot more detail.
