Ah, Harvard

Magic Cookie has this observation:
Looking at my schedule today, I realized that we have no female professors this year, but we do have two professors with "III" after their names.
A tangentially related story. In one of my law school classes, the professor, who I believe had just obtained his third divorce (at least one of the ex-wives was a former student), announced that he was looking for research assistants. Female class members, not interested in being the next Mrs. Prof, stayed away in droves. He then complained to the class after hiring four men about the dearth of woman applicants. Straight faces were kept by all, but barely.
