This month in Harvard history

May 31, 1902 — Harvard welcomes the French delegation that attended the May 24 dedication of a replica of Fernand Hamar’s bronze statue of Jean-Baptiste-Donatien de Vimeur, Comte de Rochambeau, in Washington’s Lafayette Park (across from the White House).
Led by French Ambassador Jules Cambon, the group (which includes the Comte and Comtesse de Rochambeau, representing the family ; and the Comte de Sahune de Lafayette, representing the family of the Marquis de Lafayette) attends part of the Harvard-Yale freshman baseball game at Soldiers Field, enjoys a reception with President Charles William Eliot in the Faculty Room of University Hall, and takes a drive around the University.
In Sanders Theatre, Alfred Croiset, Dean of the Faculty of Letters at the Sorbonne, delivers an address in French. After a late-afternoon tea at Phillips Brooks House, the delegation returns to Boston.
