KROKS AT CARNEGIE HALL
The Harvard Krokodiloes have appeared four times at New York City’s Carnegie Hall.
LEONARD BERNSTEIN WRITES FOR THE KROKS
The Kroks had a long and rewarding relationship with the late Maestro Leonard Bernstein ’39, who composed original music for the group and wrote the following: “The Harvard Krokodiloes have the gift of warming one’s soul and enriching one’s day. I cannot praise too highly their musicality, versatility, sense of style, and dedication to excellence.” An honorary Krok, Bernstein penned the original song “Screwed on Wrong” for the group in 1981.
HISTORY OF THE KROK LOGO
The beloved Krok-in-the-pot logo was originally inspired by an image, drawn by none other than Fred Gwynne ’51, which graced the cover of the first Krok album:
The image was simplified by Arthur Nichols ’48 into a logo that the Kroks used for nearly 30 years:
It was the artistic inspiration of Alan Wachman ’80 to give the Krok some added presence and whimsy (not to mention a hefty stein of brew), yielding the familiar symbol we know and love today:
