It's a rarity to see this logo in Miami. That means either not too many Harvard's alumni live here... or they are so modest, they do not often if ever display their banner. This must be a rare exception where the logo with the Latin inscription "VE" "RI" TAS" is seen here.

Established in 1636, Harvard is the oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The University, which is based in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, has an enrollment of over 20,000 degree candidates, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Harvard has more than 360,000 alumni around the world.

Do you know who was the most famous Harvard's alumni? Bob Hope! Really! Did you see the movie "The Son of Pale Face?" If you want a good laugh, get that movie, you'll see Bob Hope, the son of pale face, in his outfit with a giant "H" logo proudly proclaiming that he is an alumni of that illustrious university. I love that movie and the first one, "The Pale Face," especially the scene when Painless Potter Bob Hope, the father, used the laughing gas and extract using a pair of pliers the wrong tooth from a grumpy cowboy.
