Summary

Since 1998, Greg Halpern has been photographing Harvard University's lowest-paid service workers - its custodians, security guards, and food-service employees - while at the same time collecting remarkably candid interviews with them. This moving book is the extraordinary result. Among the many people Halpern introduces us to is Bill Brooks, janitor to the university's president, Larry Summers. Brooks is a shy, soft-spoken man who ran away from his home in Alabama at the age of fourteen. Since then, Brooks has spent more than two decades working at Harvard, tidying the office of the last three Harvard presidents. Bill's story, and the others in this book, shed light on the lives of the "invisible people" who clean and care for the campus, often in the middle of the night, to make the place shine by morning.
