About the Book


 

Harvard University and Cambridge Town had come into being because of the efforts of several intellectuals ‘banished’ from England. Setting up colony in a new continent, Boston Tea Party and naming of New England are topics from history texts. The old students of Cambridge University of England had left their country. But they had not been able to forget their 800-year-old university. Therefore, they named the town as Cambridge. Harvard University had also been cast in the mould of Cambridge University when it was set up.
