The Advocates for Harvard ROTC were initiated in 1988 by David Clayman ’38 to broaden the base of support for ROTC at Harvard and foster an atmosphere supportive of the program. The vision of the Advocates, now led by chairman Paul Mawn ’63, is to assure the continuance of ROTC for Harvard students, affording to these gifted young Americans the opportunities to become the future leaders in government, industry, and academia.

The Advocates’ web site contains an extensive archive of news items, editorials, and other material relating to ROTC at Harvard. We invite everyone to explore this web site and to send us new material that would be beneficial and informative to the site and the organization.

We invite alumni, current students, faculty, and staff members of Harvard University and military officers connected with Harvard ROTC to join the Advocates. More than 2600 have joined.

The Advocates’ organization was originally conceived solely for advocacy of ROTC, and it functioned independently of the Alumni Fund until 2001. Since then, the Advocates have collaborated closely with the Alumni Fund, which serves as publisher of the Advocates’ newsletter. Through the newsletter the Alumni Fund invites members of the Advocates to contribute in support of Harvard’s cadets and midshipmen.
