The two Harveys first encountered each other when Mallement pledged the fraternity of which Wertheim was already a member at CCNY. After graduating in 1962 ? Wertheim in January and Mallement in May ? the two took significantly different paths that led them back to each other intermittently throughout the 1970s and once and for all in 1980 with the formation of Harvest Partners.
Sir, Yes, SirWhile still an undergraduate student at CCNY, Wertheim made a decision that would affect the rest of his life ? he joined the ROTC program. In fact, by joining the ROTC at CCNY, Wertheim was following in the still fresh footsteps of one of the most famous generals to emerge from the program ? General Colin Powell, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff ? who was three years ahead of Wertheim in the ROTC.
