A Taste of Academy History

Ed_junior_studies_archivesAs part of Junior Studies, the required course that all ninth-graders take, all 17 sections heard a 50-minute presentation on the Academy Archives.  Students enjoyed a rare opportunity to view first-hand items such as the original deed of gift, early trustee minutes, faculty minutes, school catalogs and view books, sheet music for school songs, club records, student diaries, and scrapbooks, as well as first copies of student publications like The Exonian, The PEAN and the E-Book.  The period ended with excerpts from student letters and a selection of images from the vast collection of archival images.
