John Harvard’s statue stands in Harvard Yard and is said to be the third most photographed statue in the USA. Students of Harvard have called it The Statue of Three Lies as the inscription reads: John Harvard, Founder, 1638. Harvard was really not the founder of the University but a benefactor who was honored in the naming of the university; it was founded in 1636 and not in 1638 and it is the oldest college in the US; the statue is not of John Harvard but of a student Daniel Chester French who served as a model!
