Stanley, please meet Dean Langdell

Some of the HLSL librarians joined the Harvard University Library’s Communications & Orientation Committee on a tour of historic Mount Auburn Cemetery earlier this week. One of our team members brought along a special guest who traveled all the way from Springfield, VA: Flat Stanley. He is part of the Flat Stanley Project, which is designed for elementary school students who can send their version of Flat Stanley to friends and family. In turn, Flat Stanley’s hosts will photograph Flat Stanley in different locations and write journal entries about their adventures with Flat Stanley. Below is the letter that accompanied Flat Stanley through the mail.


Pictured here, Flat Stanley visits Christopher Columbus Langdell’s grave. Perhaps this interaction will inspire Max, this Flat Stanley’s creator, to become part of the HLS class of 2025?
