In 2002 a researcher for "The Harvard Crimson" came across a restricted archive labeled "Secret Court Files, 1920". What he uncovered was 500 pgs. of clandestine documents describing in detail an eighty-year-old episode in which Harvard University maliciously persecuted and harassed young men who were believed to be engaging in homosexual activity. It was a major scandal and one ofthe biggest cover-ups in Harvard's three and half centuries.
