Rare Original Harvard Commencement Graduation Program dated August 28, 1833. Josi E. Quincy was the President of Harvard University and Samuel Turrell Armstrong in 1833. The first page of the program is in Latin and lists the graduates. This historic document shows signs of wear as can be seen on the scans, however the paper is not brittle.
