Harvard University is a private university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the Greater Boston area. It is the oldest university in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. Eight Presidents of the United States (both Adams, Hayes, Kennedy, both Roosevelts, George W. Bush, and Obama) graduated from Harvard.
Lloyd Simcoe attended Harvard in 1998 and got his Ph.D. there. He had an apartment above the cigar shop Leavitt & Pierce in Harvard Square. Olivia Benford was originally also going to attend Harvard and live in the building next door. However, her husband Mark Benford got a job in the Los Angeles FBI field office, and she followed him to Los Angeles instead. Simcoe met his wife, who would be killed in the Global Blackout, after she moved into his building. ("A561984")
