Thomas Lentz to Leave Harvard Art Museums

Thomas W. Lentz, Cabot director of the Harvard Art Museums, today announced that he would step down at the end of the academic year—a surprising and apparently unexpected development that comes less than three months after the November 16 gala reopening of the wholly renovated, reconfigured museums complex. The more than decade-long reconstruction and consolidation of the collections in a new space built in, around, and above the original Fogg structure, with extensive teaching and conservation facilities included, was the focus of Lentz’s work since his arrival in late 2003. (Read his director’s letter on the museums’ multiple roles here.) An expert on Islamic art (specifically, Persian painting), he earned his Ph.D. at Harvard in 1985, and immediately before returning to Cambridge to assume the museums’ directorship had served as director of the Smithsonian Institution’s international ...

Competitive Challenges

Harvard Hardwood, the Harvard Magazine basketball report During halftime of Saturday’s matchup between Harvard and Dartmouth in Cambridge, a pair of former team captains—Doug Miller ’10 and Matt LaBove, Dartmouth ’13, chatted amiably in the stands behind the Dartmouth bench. Nowadays, they battle in the post in a recreational league at the Oak Square YMCA in Brighton, but five years ago they were facing off in Lavietes for two programs heading in opposite directions. Along with classmate Jeremy Lin, Miller was in the midst of leading the Crimson to their first 20-win campaign, setting the stage for Harvard’s run of four consecutive Ivy League championships. LaBove, on the other hand, was on his way to becoming the lone man remaining from a five-person recruiting class that played for three head coaches, won just eight conference games, ...

Lives in Television

As president of programming for MTV, Susanne Daniels ’87 has to be sharp and quick-witted—skills she learned very early in her career as an assistant for Saturday Night Live (SNL) creator Lorne Michaels. When a certain very famous SNL host was on set, Daniels confided yesterday to a room full of students, faculty, and staff at the Barker Center, Michaels asked Daniels “to please keep this person away from him”—for the entire week. “I was at the 30 Rock building, so I called upstairs to Tom Brokaw and said, ‘So-and-so is a big fan of yours and would really love to meet you for a tour,’ and he said, ‘Oh really? Fantastic!’ Then I went to the host and said, ‘Oh, Tom Brokaw called, loves you, and wants to show ...
