In a June 1980 column in The Boston Globe, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle wrote of the time he spent with the great Muhammad Ali (1942 - 2016) on the day Harvard was honoring Ali by making him an honorary member of the Class of l975. The school had only done that once before, in l930, for Walter Lippmann. "Make sure they mention that," Ali said.
