Photograph of Mertie West standing on a street corner across the street from Harvard Yard. A brick-paved sidewalk spans the width of the bottom edge, curving across the lower left corner. Mertie West stands at center, just at the back edge of the sidewalk; she looks to camera. Behind and to the left of her, a woman beside the left edge steps onto the sidewalk. In the near distance, Massachusetts Avenue stretches across the image. Several cars drive along it. Harvard Yard stretches along the far side of Massachusetts Avenue. Massachusetts Hall stands at center, behind Mertie. The Georgian-style building is viewed at a slight angle from its short side. Beside it, Straus Hall enters frame from the right. Straus Hall is viewed from its long side. Both buildings are draped in ivy.
Photograph of Harvard Memorial Church, as viewed through the trees standing in Harvard Yard. Harvard Yard stretches across the foreground and into the distance. A tree trunk stands along the left edge. Walkways are visible cutting through the quad; one stretches along the bottom edge. Trees dot Harvard Yard as it extends back. In the distance, at center, Harvard Memorial Church stands. It is mostly obscured by Harvard Yard's trees. It is viewed at an angle from the front. Columns are visible lining the church's porch. They are capped by a pediment. The church's steeple rises high above the trees at center.
Photograph of H. H. West standing beside the statue of John Harvard in Harvard Yard. A walkway stretches along the bottom edge. In the near distance, H. H. West stands, left-of-center. He faces the camera as he raises up an arm and rests it atop the base of the statue. The bronze statue of a seated John Harvard is viewed at a slight angle from the front. It stands at center, to the right of H. H. A bronze seal is inset to the right side of the plinth. An inscription across the front of the plinth reads, "JOHN HARVARD FOUNDER 1638." University Hall (partial view) is viewed close-up as it stretches across the background on an angle. Striped awnings hang over the second-floor windows and ivy crawls across most of the building.
