Walter Lippmann House

Walter Lippmann House, a 19th century white clapboard house on the edge of Harvard Yard, serves as the home of the Nieman Foundation.

Here fellows and affiliates can gather, check e-mail, debate a course discussion, suggest a seminar speaker, attend a workshop, plan a softball game for the kids, seek a restaurant recommendation or just settle down in a comfortable arm chair with a newspaper and a cup of coffee.

Named for renowned columnist Walter Lippmann, whose wise counsel helped to steer the program into existence, Lippmann House is also the program's administrative center. Members of the foundation staff are available to help with housing logistics or to help guide fellows through the maze of choosing courses or other needs that might occasionally arise.
