So what links Harvard and Cambridge university? Answer John Harvard and Emmanuel College, Cambridge,England
John Harvard was educated at Emmanuel College Cambridge and then emigrated to America, where he lived for the rest of his life. On his death he bequeathed monies which enabled the setting up of Harvard university.
