corky_picMichael J. Cronin

Michael J Cronin, who prefers “Corky,” is the Treasurer. His commercial lending background at BankBoston and other institutions generated sufficient knowledge of accounting to meet the elementary needs of the Harvard Club of Cape Cod. Also, reviewing the damage done by inadequate management with an accounting firm's Financial Risk Management Group engaged to assess the condition of banks around the country during the 2008 recession added another dimension and broadened his perspective. Supporting the talented Officers and Directors of the Club is an honor and a pleasure.

She works in the mornings (writing) and plays in the afternoon (walking, gardening, sightseeing).


rufus-peebles-200Rufus W. Peebles

Rufus Peebles ’61, J.D.’64, applied to Harvard because his high school counselor encouraged him and even pushed him. Thank you, Miss Carter. In the spring of 1961 he began interviewing students applying to the College. That fall he became a freshman proctor and advisor. In July, 1964, he became an Associate Director of the Harvard College Fund and began psychoanalysis in Boston. After two training programs and an Ed.D. from Boston University, he became a licensed psychologist. He served on the staff of McLean Hospital, taught psychology courses at Harvard and Leslie Graduate School, and lead professional training groups.

He really enjoys his role as Vice President for Schools of the Harvard Club of Cape Cod. This allows him to encourage students to apply to Harvard College and to work with volunteers who interview these students. Each of us makes a significant contribution to the admissions process and to these students.
