Burton-Conner #111, the housemasters’ apartment, has new residents. On Aug. 31, the new housemasters, history Professor Anne E. C. McCants and her husband, William D. “Bill” McCants, a senior attorney with the Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education, moved into their new home. They follow Professor Merrit Roe Smith and Bronwyn M. Mellquist, who stepped down after eight years.
In coming back to school, you might have noticed the new bright green and black bikes zipping around Cambridge, or the similarly-colored station near Bexley at the corner of Amherst Alley and Mass. Ave. Hubway, whose logo is proudly emblazoned in green on the bikes and stations, is a bike share system that started in Boston and now, a little over a year later, has expanded to Cambridge. Hubway is managed by Alta BicycleShare, which operates bicycle sharing systems in Washington, D.C., Arlington, and Australia.
