    Starting when I was a sophomore I started gathering information about who was in Blacker. This lead to the grand, cannonical list of all Moles:
    • By Frosh Year
    • Alphabetised by first or last name
    • Some interesting Statistics (graduation rates, number of people in a class, number of people picked, etc)
    • A chart of the states that Moles came from. (Organized by frosh year). And a listing of who came from which town for a given state.
    • Majors for house members (organized by frosh year)
    • Notes on my abreviations and documentation of my sources.

    Other pieces of information have been gathered:
