As the men of Harvard exit the NCAA tournament at the hands of the Arizona Wildcats, you'll surely want to wish them a fond and hearty farewell. So sing along with the final verse of " Fair Harvard ," written by Reverend Samuel Gilman for the university's 200th anniversary in 1836. Farewell! be thy destinies onward and bright!
