Rundlet-May House


From a gamepiece from Battledores and Shuttlecocks, a tortoiseshell, books, trophies, family dog collars, a toy elephant, Ralph May’s Harvard Class Album of 1904 and his class reunion photo at the White House in 1934, the study was a haven for reading and respite on the third floor, removed from other functions of the house. The room was furnished by James Rundlet-May and passed down to Ralph May. Hasty Pudding Club theatrical photos also line the walls along with Ralph May’s 1904 Harvard Lampoon photograph, as both James Rundlet-May and Ralph May were members of this long-lived Harvard tradition of theatrical farce.
