Samuel Eliot Morison attributed this early embroidered view of Harvard Hall at Harvard College to Mary Leverett, the daughter and granddaughter of Harvard presidents. The embroiderer replaced the cupola with a beehive and included a variation on a quotation from Virgil: "They keep out drones from these premises."
