” Ironically, the bestselling ‘historian’ of time
seems stuck in the past, known throughout his life
to put up posters of Marilyn Monroe in his office,
visit ‘gentlemen’s clubs’ and claim that women were
‘a mystery.’ ” — Philip Ball, March 1, 2021

For 6 Prescott Street*

Filed under: General — m759 @ 1:01 PM

"Freshman Seminar Program Department Administrator Corinna S. Rohse
described the program’s courses, which allow students to study subjects
that vary from Sanskrit to the mathematical basis for chess, as
'jewel-like:  small and incredibly well-cut.' "

The Harvard Crimson , Dec. 10, 2008

For remarks related to Sanskrit, chessboard structure, and "jewel-like" 
mathematics, see A Prince of Darkness (Log24, March 28, 2006).

Lecture notes on dyadic harmonic analysis
(Cuernavaca, 2000)

Dr. Maria Cristina Pereyra

Compare and contrast these remarks of Pereyra with the following
remarks, apparently by the same Corinna S. Rohse quoted above.

* Location of the Harvard Freshman Seminar program in the 2008
article above. The building at 6 Prescott was moved there from 
5 Divinity Avenue in 1978. When the seminar program was started
in the fall of 1959, it was located in a house at 8 Prescott St. (In 
1958-1959 this was a freshman dorm, the home of Ted Kaczynski.)
