“Norman Mailer ’43 to Run for Election to Overseers.” Article by Deborah B. Johnson. Harvard Crimson, 6 January, 1. Thomas Nagel, a philosophy professor at Princeton, collected the necessary signatures to put Mailer on the ballot for the 30-member Harvard Board of Overseers to be mailed to over 100,000 Harvard degree holders. Mailer agreed to run, but said, “I don’t think one voice in 30 would do a great deal.” See 69.9.
