In looking through old school publications and memorabilia, we found interesting comments, primarily from students and alumni, about the school and about the times in which they attended it. There are some fascinating similarities and contrasts that literally span centuries.

We thought we would share some of them with you. The quotations are like the old photographs in our Photo Gallery, except they are snapshots of language, of thoughts and feelings, ambitions and fears. They are a time machine that evokes Puritan New England, World Wars I & II, the threat (and promise) of Communism, the challenges of a multicultural society. We grouped some of them. Browse and see what you find.
