" We fear the Senior-Middlers will not welcome this very cordially for they will have to surpass it next year. The College Seniors will hold it in contempt for they have visions of grander college books in the future. And lastly, we fear the underclass girls will reject our book for they will wish to be in style. With all its faults and with all the abuse which may come to us, the 1900 Class Book contains, we hope, enough of lasting value, so that in days to come when it is opened and the familiar faces look from the pages and the jolly school days reviewed, the woman of the future will hold it as a priceless souvenir, and a true reminder of the days at Abbot. The Editors. TO OUR HONORED PRINCIPAL, Qtti06 Emif£ (ftfcams (Jtteans, THIS BOOK IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED BY THE CLASS OF 1900. Class IMstory HE FIRST FRIDAY in October, 1899, is not noted for any great event in modern history, yet that day will always be of interest to us, for then the Class of 1900 was brought into existence, and, amid the sur- roundings in the gymnasium, our officers were chosen, and the life of 1900 as a class began. Realizing that all young life should be spent quietly at first, i90o ' s early days were lived in a calm and quiet manner. However, during this time we were accumulating strength, and our class spirit was asserting itself. ' 99 soon found that her younger sister was not to be imposed upon, and began to respect the spirit which resented our being tied into our rooms, considering herself fortunate to escape the pitcher of water which unfortunately fell upon one higher in authority. The one great event of the first year was our base- ball game with ' 99. Our enemies claimed we won the game by deep laid schemes and plans, but the impartial spectator knew that it was strength and practice which defeated the Senior ball nine. Just before the end of the year, 1900 was given a glimpse of society at the Bancroft reception, having a fore- taste of senior pleasures, and with the transfer of the spade on Class Day, 1900 began to realize her approaching senior duties. No year could have had a more promising begin- ning than the first of our Senior year. Six old members failed to return, but our number was raised to eighteen by a new comer, and full of hope and courage we began the voyage which should land us at St. Graduate ' s Isle. We met difficulties at every hand. Psychology seemed a mist in which very often our understanding was completely blinded, and Church History transplanted us to unfamiliar scenes and places. But we never lost hope and even found time to enjoy life, giving a reception to the Faculty and school, entertaining them in our best manner. It has always been a pleasure to 1900 to attend social functions in the town, and in this way we have made many friends and acquaintances. Our attempt to give some Senior Dramatics and to publish a " Class Book " has made our friends call us enter- prising and ambitious, and our baseball victory over 1 90 1 shows that our athletic record is still high. The beauties of this world of art have been shown us, the wisdom of the ages has been offered us, and ere long our senior voyage will be ended and we shall hold in our hands the parchment in blue. Though the history of 1900 as a class is nearly over, the life of her eighteen members is just dawning, and as our aim as a class has been to leave a noble memory behind us, so the aim of each individual member is, to live a noble life in the future. Grace Carter Chapman. Senior Class 1900 «♦ Class Colors — Crimson and Gray. motto : Not to live, but to live well! ' OFFICERS Constance R Gutterson, Grace Frances Fleek, C. Winifred Todd, Emma F. Bixby, President Vice-Presiden t Secretary Treasurer Flower — -Jacqueminot Rose. Winona Keith Algie IT has never been our good fortune to visit Ogdensburg New York, but if we may judge of the city from its one represent- ative here, we should style it a quiet, sleepy place, which occasion- ally arouses itself and performs startling and brilliant deeds. Winona Keith Algie is a girl of this type. In the two years Winona has been here at Abbot, she has been prominent in Athletics, being a member of our 1900 Base Ball team, and as an editor of the Cowant she has given many contributions to our school paper and is generally acknowledged the best writer in the class. We have not heard Winona say definitely what she ex- pects to do next year, but we prophesy that Ogdens- burg will be the richer for her remaining there. Emma Frances Bixby FRANCISTOWN, New Hampshire, was a very matter-of- fact, quiet, little town until the day when Emma Frances Bixby made her appearance and stated then and there that she intended to be a member of Abbot 1900. She entered Abbot three years ago and during that time has been a member of the Base Ball team, champion in the Tennis Tournament and secretary of the Y. W. C. A. Her success as an elocutionist was secured last year when she appeared as a Draper Reader and although we think that Emma is our best actress, we do not believe that she has any in- tentions of rivaling Julia Marlowe. But, instead, next year she will rouse Francistown from its stupor and set the ball of Society rolling anew. Alice Eloisc Bradley HOLYOKE, Massa- chusetts, was honored with Alice Eloise Bradley ' s first smile, and from the first that smile must have been destined to accompany her through life as it still beams forth after eight years in a boarding school. Alice came to Abbot four years ago and although of a retiring dispo- sition, with the fondness for " Roman gold " and " han- soms, " which she has developed during this time, she will never be forgotten. If our advice should be asked in planning out a successful future for Alice, we would say " advertising agent for Shreve, Crump Low " but our advice has not been asked and she will return to her home in Holyoke. Mary Tyler Carlcton YW HEN our neigh- VV boring city of Lawrence came to the full realization that Mary Tyler Carleton was one of its daugh- ters, it immediately set about constructing an electric railroad to And- over so that this promising daughter could have the ad- v antages of Abbot Academy. So for the last four years the electric railroad has been able to carry out its first project and Mary has been a student at Abbot. She has acquired a reputation that shows she is all she gave promise of becoming and 1900 is proud of " the girl that never flunks. " She is the only one of our number who will not finish her school life here but wherever she goes we feel sure that she will live up to her reputation. 13 Grace C. Chapman T V HE inhabitants of Portland, Maine, will never forget the peculiar sound that startled the whole city not many years ago. Some thought it was the new chimes and others were at a loss what to make of it, but after inquiring it was found to be Grace Carter Chapman, a child of eight years, laughing at one of Plato ' s theories. Ever since that day she has laughed heartily over languages, mathematics and sciences, when other less gifted mortals have groaned and sighed over them. She has been at Abbot two years and during that time has been a Courant editor, a member of the Glee Club, President of the Y. W. C. A. and is this year a member of the Senior Base Ball team. Next year Grace will return to Portland and once more startle that city with her laugh and learning. T4 Grace Frances Fleek IF loyalty to our na- tive town counts for anything, Newark, Ohio should be happy in possessing Grace Frances Fleek as an inhabitant, for any in- sult against Newark, Miss Fleek takes as personal. She entered Abbot about five years ago and at once established a popularity which is not in the least diminished by the fact that she has grown to the dignity of an Abbot Senior. Grace was unanimously elected vice-president of her class and for three years has been business editor of the Courant. She is a member of the Glee Club and Base Ball team. For three success- ive years she has been a Draper Reader. The Y. W. C. A. would not be complete without her and last year she served as its vice-president. She goes from us to take her loyalty and popularity to her home in Newark. 15 Caroline Van Note Oowdy VWTHETHER the yV atmosphere of Toms River is con- ducive to poetry or whether it is one of the characteristics of the family is not known, but that Caroline Van Note Gowdy of Toms River, New Jersey, would be a poet of Andover, if not of world renown was a generally acknowledged fact be- fore she had been in our midst a week. She has written poetry on every possible subject during her two years here, inspired partly by her literary surroundings in And- over and partly by her numerous " crushes " so it seemed only natural that she should be chosen class poet. Carol is not only a poet but an athlete for she holds the record of the fifty yard dash. As to the future she is undecided but next year she hopes to go abroad. 16 Constance Reed Gutterson W 7 HEN Con- Vv stance Reed Gutterson of Melur, Southern India, first came to Abbot, every girl in school wondered if the power to charm was a gift that India bestowed upon all her daughters, or if Constance was one of Dame Fortune ' s favorites. At any rate it was not long before she was an acknowledged favorite here and after five years was voted unanimously the most popular girl in the class. She is the President of our class and last year was President of the Y. W. C. A., and besides these offices of importance is on the Base Ball team and Glee club. Although Con ' s dream of the future is to study medicine she has not yet decided to join the profession but will go to Winchester Mass., where she will make her home. n y Lucy Atta Hamilton w HEN Lucy Atta Hamilton came from Quincy, Illinois, this year, and joined the ranks of Abbot Seniors, and became a member of 1900, the two other girls from the west greeted her with open arms, and Lucy became our third western girl. Though she has not been among us long enough to have held any class office, she has acquired a strong hold on our affections, and our last member is far from being the least in importance among us. Next winter Lucy will be in her western home and as we have seen her ability to have a good time here in Abbot, we feel safe in saying that Quincy will not be dull for her next winter, for the theatre is always available, and Illinois College is near at hand. 18 Carrie Starr Harmon THE State of Maine has always had prominent members in national circles and here in the class of 1900 there are two girls from that state. One representative, Carrie Starr Harmon, from Portland, Maine, has the unfortunate (?) failing of never losing her temper, and is popularly declared the best natured girl in the class. Last year Carrie was Treasurer of the Y. W. C. A., and was a valuable as- sistant in collecting Athletic dues. But she has abilities in other directions as well as in money matters, for last spring she was an able contestant for the tennis championship. We have heard that it is her in- tentions to remain in Portland next winter, and we add that a good time is undoubtedly in store for her. 9 E 1 Edith Bryant Johnston DITH Bryant John- ston claims Man- chester, New Hamp- shire, as her home, and although she has never said so, we believe that I her sole reason for coming to Abbot was to satisfy, to as great a degree as possible, her unquenchable thirst for know- ledge. In all of her classes she has been a " shining light, " but the rays might have penetrated deeper had Edith not scorned Athletics so completely. She is a member of the Y. W. C. A., and served this year as its recording secretary. Edith ought to go to Bryn Mawr, or Radcliffe, but she says that her intention is to remain in Manchester, probably with the idea that Dartmouth may become coeducational. Gertrude May Lawrence ONE bright morn- ing in June, New- port, Vermont, was the scene of Gertrude May Lawrence ' s first ap- pearance upon the American Stage — of Life. She entered Ab- bot four years ago and ever since that time has been loyal to her class and school. Tall and dignified, she is chosen an usher on every occasion, thereby showing outsiders an example of an Abbot Senior. She is an enthusiastic member of the Base Ball team, and one of Gertrude ' s characteristics is, that she never says " die " until the game is lost. At the present time she is a " homeless wanderer " as her New- port home has been discarded and next year she expects to travel in order to test the society of different countries. Mary I. Morgan A capital girl from the capitol city, — that is Mary Morgan from Washington, D. C. What Abbot was before her we don ' t know, and what it will be without her we can not imagine, for from morning till night Mary furnishes us with music from her inexhaustible supply of Coon Songs. But her accom- plishments are not only in one line. For the past two years, Mame has been a member of the GleeClub, Chris- tian Association, and last year was Captain of our vic- torious Base Ball team. 1900 owes much to Mary Mor- gan and we shall consider ourselves fortunate to be repre- sented by her in Washington society next winter, where the fame of 1900 will be worthily upheld before the world ' s diplomats. Charlotte Keith Shipman VW7E don ' t know Vy much ab o ut Montpelier, Vermont, except that it is a pretty cold place in winter, but we do know that Charlotte Keith Shipman was anything but " cold " when she was unanimously elected " class baby. " Charlotte came here three years ago and this year reached the dignity of a Senior, thereby being compelled to leave behind, her short dresses and braided hair. Charlotte absolutely scorns all athletics except walking in six feet of snow on snow-shoes and playing tag with the wind on a double- runner. Next year Charlotte intends to go West and if Abbot life has been an example of her ability to have a good time we thoroughly believe that Western life will bring her much enjoyment. 23 Christine W. Todd T " HE only girl in our class who sings " God Save the Queen " with all the loyalty of a true British subject, is Christine Winifred Todd of St. Stephens, New Brunswick. She has been here for four years and the fact that she is not only our brightest girl but the most promising, shows what a full course at Abbot will do for a girl. Winifred is the Secretary of our class and has for two years been a business manager of the Courant and is also a member of our victorious Base Ball team. The United States has not sufficient in- ducements to keep her, so she will return to her home in Canada, where the chill winds will never cool her ardor for 1900. 24 Edith Hilton Valpcy AMONG our eigh- teen members, Edith Hilton Valpey is the only girl who has the distinction of being born and bred in classic Andover. Un- doubtedly it was this intellectual influence about her, which gave Edith such a start of the rest of us girls, for in the very first recitation in Psychology, Miss Means called her a " born Psychologist. " Though 1900 will soon leave Abbot we do not feel that 1900 will leave Andover, for Edith we hope, will be here t o tell 1901 that though they do very well, they must not hope to try to reach the brilliancy 1900 attained. We feel sure that she will guard our interests with her usual care and watchfulness. 25 Alice Mary Wood A 1 LTHOUGH the city of Bradford, Massachusetts, can claim Alice Mary Wood, still Abbot is the only school that she cheers for and as the leader of the cheer- ing staff she makes it a howling success. She has always shown a strong class spirit and although she has a tendency to throw water on fires and alas ! on teachers, she has never thrown any on our brilliant class projects, but has always shown herself ready for a good time. To fully appreciate her you must hear her talk, especially in class meetings. Alice intends to travel next year, and will then return to Bradford and enter society, where the glory of our class will be nobly upheld in the home of our rival school, and 1900 is proud to be represented by this loyal enthusiastic member. 26 Mary C. Wuichct VW E wonder if the " sun always shines in Dayton, Ohio. That is the impression we have of the city for otherwise how could Mary Catherine Wuichet always have such a sunny, laughing expression on her face ? The blackest thunder-cloud vanishes when Mary appears. During the two years she has been here she has been very prominent in athletics, being catcher on the 1900 Baseball team, and winning the championship in the bicycle races last spring. Mary often favors her particular friends with charming vocal selections, but the general public has no knowledge of her abilities in this direction. If Dayton should know all the Stirling qualities of Mary ' s nature she would have reason to be proud of her, as 1900 is. 27 Class poem With flying feet the years have sped away, And carried us along the road of life. All sunshine seems the way we ' ve come to-day, The echoes of our laughter float along, While happy voices clear and free from strife Call gaily back to us their sweetest song. For now time at the cross-roads seems to wait And bids us linger o ' er that road so fair. What brighter pathway could we ask of fate ! So sheltered and so dear its winding lies, So shadowed o ' er with love and gentle care, Our hearts turn back, our careless laughter dies. Then voices that we love call tenderly, " That sheltered path again you cannot tread, To-day life ' s broader, rougher way you see. On all things lovely, pure keep heart and will, With courage forward go — and not with dread, For God ' s great love shall be your shelter still. " 28 A shining mist hangs o ' er the road before, We cannot pierce its glorious mystery. We know together lie our ways no more And on our hearts a chill of sadness falls. Then hope weaves visions fair of what may be And life seems bitter-sweet — the unknown calls. For one to halls of fame the path may lead, For one the road to gloomier ways may turn, But all will cherish memories sweet indeed. Ah yes, whatever fate we each may see, Come dark — come light, thro ' life our hearts shall burn With love — Oh Alma Mater dear — for thee. Thy memories pure the fleeting years shall bring, And though our senses dull should be, thy call " Not to live only, but live well " shall ring. Oh may the One who holds us in His hand Grant that this noble standard never fall, And " Well done " may the final record stand !

But back from dreamland soon she came And rubbed her sleepy eyes, For in her dreams she heard her name And a question asked besides. 31 Senior Dramatics pandora A CLASSICAL PLAY IN THREE ACTS.

Only the sound of moans and sighs, Came from their lips so pale ; And about their necks each bore a card, Which told a mournful tale. For there we read in letters large, How sad had been their fates, Psychology had killed each one, And now they warned their mates. Oh, never take Psychology, It is a frightful thing, It is a monster in disguise, And can much trouble bring. ■ Unless you wish to be a ghost, Beware of Mr. James ; For he will set your brain awhiri, With great and dreadful names. 36 Some ' Cbings Cde F)ear " Why are you so quiet ?

If a body meet a teacher after ten at night, If a body meet a teacher need she have a fright ? Every lassie has her failings, few they say have we, Yet after ten they know that oft, we ' re where we shouldn ' t be.

And were you here, you ' d think, misused ! For you surely knew what you meant to say And said it in your own queer way. Alas, ' twas not your intention To have " Variorums " of man ' s invention, To tell us what your phrases mean When they your brain have never seen. They do not know your inmost thought, Your genius to write, they ' ve never caught, And yet they explain you — they ' re surely mocking, They wrangle and contend in a way that ' s shocking. They spend pages on pages in trying to say What you meant by saying a thing in " this way, " As if anyone cares what your phrases might mean When in all of your works your own words are seen. 48 And so, teachers all, we cannot well think That Shakespeare intended his great name to sink, He meant it to live, by his plays much enjoyed — By such wrangle and fuss let alone ! Unalloyed ! ! ! ! ft ft Senior Sayings On the baseball " grounds : — Why don ' t you get the short back out there ? After a while St. Francis died, and a church was built over his ruins.

Abbot, fair Abbot, soon from thee we all must part, Abbot, fair Abbot, dear to every heart. When in our dreaming we recall these happy days, Then dear old Abbot we will sing your praise. All your haunts remember, " Maple Walk, " the " Old Oak Tree, " Wishing, next September, we might with you be. , Tunc — Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean 1900, Oh long may she prosper, To her may we ever be true, May her colois e ' er float proudly o ' er us, And never be lost to our view. 1900, we ' ll love her forever, Our class to each heart is so dear, With our banner still floating before us, For the red and the grey let us cheer. Chorus. Three cheers for the red and the grey, Three cheers for the red and the grey, With our banner still floating before us, 1900, forever and aye. Her memories will ne ' er be forgotten, Her praises for aye will be sung, Thro ' long years tho ' her members be severed, That name shall still be on each tongue. [900, the pride of old Abbot, With our voices still joyful and clear, ' Tis with honor we stand as thy daughters And bring thee new praise with each year.
