Last fall’s Harvard-Yale football game (10–zip, Crimson ) marked the fortieth anniversary of Harvard’s famous 29-29 “victory” over the Elis. HBS later became a tiebreaker of sorts: Five players from Yale’s 1968 team went on to get MBAs at HBS, compared to four from the Crimson squad.
New since that epic battle is the Murr Center, the brick edifice at the open end of the Stadium. A 1998 gift of Michael Murr (MBA ’75), the building houses squash and tennis courts; a Harvard athletics history hall; and administrative offices, including that of Harvard athletics director Bob Scalise (MBA ’89), who presides over the largest Division I program (41 varsity sports) in the nation.
