About the Author
The first volume of the Harvard Lampoon
appeared in February, 1876. Written by seven undergraduates and modeled on Punch
, the British humor magazine, the debut issue took the Harvard campus by storm. United States President Ulysses S. Grant was advised not to read the magazine, as he would be too much "in stitches" to run the government.
