Harvard University’s Adams House

March 11, 2014

The author of two self-published books, What Matters Most Is What You Do Next: Dealing with Adversity, and Don’t Even Smile: The Other Side of Sexual Harassment, Dr. Geoffrey Mountvarner is a graduate of the Harvard University School of Public Health. Dr. Geoffrey Mountvarner contributes a good deal of his spare time to supporting Adams House.

As one of Harvard’s 12 undergraduate housing facilities, Adams House is regularly referred to as the university’s “most historic house.” The origins of Adams House can be traced back to the mid-1700s and the construction of Apthorp House. It was not until 1931 that the historic building was renovated and became Adams House.

Since that time the building has been home to a number of notable Harvard undergrads, such as Franklin Roosevelt, William Randolph Hearst, Jr., and Henry Kissinger. More recent occupants include actors John Lithgow and Donal Logue. The inaugural master of Adams House chose to name the building after John Adams and the Adams family as a whole.
