Warning: Don't believe everything you read on the statue of John Harvard in Harvard's Old Yard. It's often referred to as the 'Statue of three lies' because first of all, the model was a student and not John Harvard. The inscription, which reads, 'John Harvard, Founder, 1638' therefore is wrong on three counts. It's not a statue of John Harvard. John Harvard was not Harvard's founder, but rather its benefactor and the university wasn't founded in 1638, but instead 1636!
