  • The word-count limit for letters is 350, including signatures (with exceptions at the discretion of the editor).
  • Letters may be edited for length, style, and clarity.
  • Email letters to or send by regular mail to Editor, The Harvard Press, P.O. Box 284, Harvard, MA 01451. Deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday to be included in that Friday's edition.
  • Letters should include your name, address, and phone number. Phone numbers and house numbers will not be printed; they are used only for verification.
  • We will not print anonymous letters, form letters, blanket-mail letters, or letters that we consider libelous.
  • We will not print more than one letter from the same person in any given week.
  • Letters must be signed by individuals; we do not accept group names as signatures. Up to four people may sign a letter on behalf of a group; all must provide addresses and phone numbers.
  • During contests for public office, we will not publish endorsement letters the Friday before an election. Based on space availability, we may limit the number of endorsement letters in a given week, but will strive to print a balanced representation of letters received. We will not publish negative letters about any candidate.
  • All letters may be read online by Harvard Press subscribers who are logged-on registered users of the website.

Stasi in Harvard?

Deborah Skauen’s comparison of Harvard’s Select Board to the secret police of East Germany during the Cold War is both illogical and repugnant. We don’t know of anyone in Harvard who serves as an informer to a police force that imprisons anyone resisting the control of a totalitarian state. Comparing these two groups shows disrespect for the many lives destroyed by the Stasi. Through exaggeration and distortion, Ms. Skauen suggests that requiring diversity training of town employees is comparable to the imprisonment of people who don’t believe our country has a problem with racism.

Congratulations to the members of the Select Board who are considering the suggestion that more be done to combat systemic racism. They have listened to the young and idealistic voices from Arm in Arm—voices that ask that more people be educated about this problem, particularly those in public service.
