The New York Times has finally chimed in with some new tidbits:
Lawrence H. Summers, the president of Harvard University, has decided to resign and is expected to make his decision public later today or tomorrow, three officials affiliated with the university said today.
Someone has finally gone past the two anonymous Wall Street Journal sources, so I think it’s finally safe to say that the fat lady is singing loudly. Another interesting revelation:
Derek Bok, who served as president of Harvard from 1971 to 1991, and before that as dean of the law school, is expected to step in as interim president, starting in July, according to a university official.
A new president by next fall. Would the first female president of Harvard be too not subtle?
UPDATE 1:15 pm: The Crimson is now reporting the same thing.
