The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Summers, Menino Celebrate Completion of Allston-Brighton Oral History Project

Outgoing University President Lawrence H. Summers received a warm send-off from the City of Boston last night at an event held at the Harvard Business School�s Spangler Center to celebrate the completion of the Allston-Brighton Oral History Project.

The ceremony packed one of the Business School's opulent conference centers with local Allston-Brighton residents invited to view the premiere of a documentary on the area's history produced by John D. Perry '03 and sponsored by the University and Boston.

The University's effort to warm the local community to its ever-deepening presence was not lost on attendees, who were treated to a sumptuous buffet of duck canap├ęs, marinated artichokes, and chocolate ├ęclairs.

"I think it's important for them to make the gesture," said Elizabeth Cusack, whose son, John Cusack, serves on the Harvard-Allston Task Force appointed by Menino. "And I think it will help in the future."
