Interestingly, although FDR completed his undergraduate studies in 1903 and biographies of him list him as having graduated Harvard in 1903, the Class of 1903 did not consider him a member of their Class, since he stayed on doing graduate work and continuing as Editor of The Crimson until 1904 when he left Harvard. In the Secretary’s Preface on page ix, Roger Ernst states that “I have been more than gratified by the response which you have made to my question relating to the New Deal experiments. . . I shall not undertake in this brief preface to analyze the replies. I will merely say that the vastly predominant opinion about President Roosevelt is summarized in the following lines from Harry Brown’s report: “But the best of all about F. D. – / He wasn’t a member of 1903.’ Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2 lbs 11 oz. Category: Education; Biography & Autobiography. Inventory No: 010961.
