Description: 

Elly tells her grandmother that Paul "went to" Harvard as part of her attempt to convince the disbelieving old woman that Paul is "not a negro" (218). When the grandmother says she "can understand Harvard" (218), she may be referring to the fact that Harvard began admitting black students, in small numbers at first, shortly after the Civil War.
