If you’ve ever stepped foot on Harvard’s campus, you’ve seen the Wadsworth gate, though you may not have realized it. Nestled between the urban bustle of Harvard Square and the red brick of the Yard, I walk past it nearly every day, but rarely do I stop to ponder its history.

For Thompson as well as James K. McGlinchey ’25 and Dylan A. Pancoast ’23, Harvard was not the first stop after high school. All three served in the military for six to eight years before coming to Harvard, during which time they got married. All three currently live off campus, away from the hustle and bustle of house life.
