Dear President Eisenhower...

Consider the following letter written in 1956 by a 9-year old girl to President Dwight Eisenhower:


That 9-year old girl is now a President herself. Not of the United States but of Harvard University: Catharine Drew Gilpin Faust is Harvard's 28th President, its first female President, and the first President since 1672 without an undergraduate or graduate degree from Harvard. She was interviewed for a recent Freakonomics podcast, "The President of Harvard Will See You Now," an interview that is is well worth your time. You can listen to the podcast at the Freakonomics website or download it from iTunes.
