Art Editor: RD '23-'24
Publication: May 2022

From the Desk of EBC, December 2021:

Dear Readers,

I thought an issue about the nuclear apocalypse would be totally uncontroversial, considering that there would certainly be no chance that the world is on the precipice of nuclear war when this issue goes to print and is distributed to our entire readership (every Harvard undergraduate and NATO). I guess we'll see what happens two to four months from now, when I'd certainly change the issue theme unless someone writes something genius, like a piece about a frat boy during the Cold War, and I have no choice but to publish the entire magazine regardless of relevant global politics.
