Notice that the Harvard GSAS format is only necessary for the bound(Archives) copy of the thesis, and its associated unbound (boxed) copy,both of which are submitted to the Registar's Office. Copies for your researchgroup, copies for your departmental library (in my case Physics ResearchLibrary), personal copies, etc, need not follow this format, andwill certainly look more professional if you play with the format (seebelow).In January 2000 the Harvard University GSAS format was updated. The new`Form of the Doctoral Thesis' handbook is available online As well as the two people it lists to contact at Pusey library (whose experteeslie mainly with the physical requirements), I found the Registrar'sOffice (5-1519, I spoke to Lauren Lemire but there maybe others there who can help) most useful. It seems some issues with thenew format are being ironed out and it is best to ask.
