Harvard Prepares for Faust Coronation

Walking through the yard these days, one can't miss that they're preparing for a major ceremony of some kind. Turns out its the "installation" for our new president. What has struck me, and surely others, is the imagery that the decorators have gone with. The picture I took hardly captures it - the yard is hung in hundreds of blood-red banners. Many of these banners have simple, imposing designs which I have never seen. I'll charitably liken it to the coronation ceremony in Ian McKellan's Richard III (instead of directly comparing it to Nazi rallies).
