Harvard College Class Reports

The Class Report Office publishes fourteen Reports annually for each Harvard and Radcliffe quinquennial reunion class. Informally known as the “Red Books,” Class Reports are a long-standing Harvard tradition, dating back at least to the mid-1800s. They serve as historical chronicles of classes and encourage alumni to maintain connections with each other and the College through the sharing of current contact information, family and professional news, and in-depth life stories. Content is gathered for the Reports by means of a questionnaire provided to all class members and is ushered into print in advance of Reunion by a team of five professional editors.

This enduring and beloved tradition remains strong due to the high participation and generosity of class members in supporting the books. During this time of deep uncertainty as a consequence of the pandemic, all College alumni celebrating a reunion can count on the certainty of receiving their Red Books in the mail, regardless of participation. We ask for your continued support to help fund the production and shipping costs of your book by making a modest voluntary contribution at your Class’s website below.

2020 and 2021 Reunion Class Reports

Staffing and postal contingencies arising from the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated some modifications to the printing and shipping schedules of this year's Class Report books. However, please rest assured that they have been published and you will receive them!

If you have not received a copy of your book by now, please email the editor through the corresponding link above. However, please note that staff members are all working remotely at present. We do not have access to the books and thus are currently unable to mail copies out. We will be keeping a list of these requests and promise to fill them as soon as we are able. As for the 2021 Class Report books, they are in production and will be shipped as early as possible!
