Excerpt from History of the Bowdoin School, 1821-1907

When this work was commenced, the thought was to make a slight sketch of the first quarter of a century of the Bowdoin School, which ended in 1846, and would interest the oldest graduates, by refreshing their memories of school-days, and enlighten the latest graduates, by showing them the vast difference between the old and the new. As this method left fully a third of the administration of Masters Andrews and Robinson untold, the work was continued to 1871, a half-century; then, an earnest request from the graduates of the last thirty-six years, has caused the continuance of the work to 1906, June 25, the day of the last graduation.

Many serious difficulties were met with; the first, it was almost impossible to find out about the school during its first ten years, when boys attended; the second, there are no records of the school earlier than 1854; the third, at least a third, and the most trying part of the work, was hunting up information, so that pictures of the principals could be used in illustrating the book.

I thank many of the graduates for the interesting material they sent in. No names have been given, except to valedictories and poems. Miss Sarah E. Adams, Class '46, and Miss Fannie B. Gridley, Class '66, gave me much assistance; also Mrs. Hannum of Cambridge, Mrs. Emerson of Milton, Mrs. Hutchins of Memphis, Tenn., none of them connected with the Bowdoin School in any way, gave me much and important help. I also extend thanks to Mr. Alonzo Meserve, principal, Miss S. Frances Perry, and especially to Miss Eudora E. W. Pitcher, teachers, in the Bowdoin.
