Harvard Magazine’s Berta Greenwald Ledecky Undergraduate Fellows for the 2008-09 academic year will be Brittney Moraski ’09 and Christian Flow ’10, who were selected after a competitive evaluation of writing submitted by student applicants. The fellows, who join the editorial staff during the year, contribute to the magazine’s “The Undergraduate” column and also initiate story ideas, write news and feature items, and edit copy before publication.
Moraski, of Bark River, Mich., resides in Dunster House and concentrates in history and literature, with a focus on gender in the 19th and 20th centuries and modern American intellectual history. A past Crimson reporter and current admissions office tour guide and modern books and manuscripts assistant at Houghton Library, she plans to spend the summer doing research for her thesis, beginning work with Harvard Magazine, and continuing her job at Houghton.
Flow, of Baltimore and Eliot House, is concentrating in classics, with a focus in both Latin and Greek. A Crimson reporter, he currently helps to cover the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. During the summer, he will serve as a residential assistant for the Center for Talented Youth program at Johns Hopkins University. He also has designs on rediscovering exercise, one of his great passions.
The fellowship is supported by Jonathan J. Ledecky ’79, M.B.A. ’83 and named in honor of his mother.
