MABELLE ETHELYN BOSHER, Librarian. ii SCHOOL HISTORY BBOT Academy the first incorporated school for the higher education of girls in this Commonwealth, was legally established in February of the year 1829. The name was given in honor of Madame Sarah Abbot, who made a donation of one thousand dollars toward a school building. Abbot Hall was the pride of Andover. Smith Hall was built in 1854 to provide better accommodations for the many pupils from out of town. In 1859, Miss Philena McKeen became principal of the school, her sister, Miss Phebe, coming with her to be first assistant. The need of a new dormitory was pressing, so in 1884, Miss McKeen, at the request of the trustees made many trips to interested people, soliciting funds. Draper Hall, named in recognition of the generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. Warren F. Draper, was completed in 1890. The furnishings represent the love of many devoted pupils and friends of the school. Miss McKeen resigned her long principalship in 1892, six years before her death. Miss Laura S. Watson succeeded her, filling the position of principal for six years, until her resignation. In 1898, Miss Emily A. Means, who had for some years been identified with the school, especially with the Art Department, became head of Abbot Academy. 12 THE OLD RAILROAD ALPHABET A is for Abbot and Andover, too, Admired for learning, both Ancient and new. B is for Baseball and Bumps, Blue and Black, The result of a Badly-caught Ball or a whack. C, for the Caution we all have to use, When we walk in the Corridors in our Calf shoes. D suggests Dollars and Dimes, which we spend For Delectable Dainties and Drinks without end. E is for Ethics and Eminent men, Which Each day we look up, and forget them again. F ' s for the Fudge with a Fine chocolate Flavor, Those who won ' t eat it we hold in disfavor ; G stands for Golf, and O Gracious ! see how We dig up the Ground, as if with a plow. H is for Herbart, Hume, Hutchinson, Hegel, — To distinguish whose theories perhaps you are able. I ' s for the Ignorance you will display, If you think I Invented this all in a day. J is for Jam, which on crackers we spread And Joyfully eat, ere we Jump into bed. K for the Knowledge, with which, with great Kindness, Our teachers supply us, enlightening our blindness. L ' s for the Lights, which go out at ten. Do the candles and Lamps ? Well, perhaps not quite then. 14 M is for Monkeys who love Mischief well, And so do some girls here, but More we won ' t tell. N stands for Nothing, so do Not be vexed If I just drop this letter, and take up the Next. O ' s for Opinions to Open One ' s eyes, Given in class when we wish to seem wise. P is for Pains and for faces all Pale, Which just before churchtime, on Sundays, Prevail. Q is for Questions and Queries Quite Queer, With which we kill time when the hour ' s end is near. R ' s for the Running, which follows the bell, When we Rush, tying neckties, to breakfast, pell mell. S for the Serenade, loud and Sonorous, Sounding So Sweetly, ere Slumber Steals o ' er us. T ' s for the Theories, some of us hold, But which we don ' t practice if Truth must be Told. U ' s for the Use, most Unusual, made Of a golf-stick, for stirring up iced lemonade. V ' s for the Vigor with which we ' ll essay To Vie for a Victory on our Field Day. W ' s the Watchman, most Wakeful of Wights, Who Wards off all danger and harm in the nights. X is for Xerxes and Xantippe, who Xpired before aught of Abbot they knew. Y ' s for this Year, — to its end it has drawn — And so has this rhyme, so stifle that Yawn. Z is for Zach, the last but not least, And now I must stop, inspiration has ceased. 15 SENIOR CLASS 1901 MOTTO Wie die Arbeit, so der Lohn COLORS Green and Gold Offi cers Evelyn Carter .

Our class meetings were few and far between, but while only a Senior Middler one is never overtaxed with pressing business. We chose our officers in due order, early in the year. In the spring we really did our very best to defeat our betters at ball, and although it cannot be truthfully said that we accomplished our purpose, yet, nothing daunted, we shall try again. We have had the extra advantage of a severe mental training, and as we have all learned that mind rules matter, 1901 has the greatest hopes of success. Thus peacefully passed our first year as a well organized class. The final year saw our gallant band reduced to fifteen, and fif- teen we have remained through all the vicissitudes of Psychology and Ethics and Theism. Our president of 1900 was again unan- imously elected and is steering us safely through this eventful year. In November, the class gave its customary reception to the school, with unparalled success. There have been a number of senior spreads, which, strange as it may seem, were hailed with 17 much enthusiasm. One in particular, given by two members of Draper Hall, deserves mention for taste of more than one kind. Knowing that the fool is wise in his own conceit, we have striven to cultivate the spirit of modesty, and have so well succeeded that few have heard of the efforts we have made to absorb Psychological facts. We make our farewells regretfully, wishing all undergraduates as joyful and as successful a career. 18 Rebecca Hing; Baxter, - Mansfield, O. President Y. W. C. A., 1901. Courant Editor, 1900.

Ah, when we were Senior Middlers, We were frisky and fresh as you, But one day in last September We all turned prussiari blue. They dragged us into a classroom, They set us round in a row, They opened those grim brown covers, And said, How much do you know ? They hauled us through those pages, (The process was very slow,) ' Til we wished that the cerebellum Would put on its hat and go. They steeped us in Sensation, Habit, Attention, Will. Of Memorable Emotions, Each victim had her fill. 26 k They smiled at our hopeless confusion, They choked us with horrible names, And whenever we pleaded, reproachful, They said, You must blame Mr. James. We floundered in desperation To page two hundred and eight. There we read of insane delusions, And felt that would be our fate. So this is the pitiful story, Told when the day-beams fade, And the Seniors sit together, Pondering the flunks they ' ve made. college: preparatory class 1901 MOTTO Fide liter COLORS White and Gold Officers Harriet Alihea Lee Julia Charlton Rockwell Clara Locke Thomson Helen Isabella Buck President Vice President Secretary Treasu?-er v 2cS COLLEGE PREPARATORY CLASS HISTORY [NCE we are only a College Preparatory class, and do not belong, correctly speaking, to the body of ancient and honorable Seniors, we feel, naturally, a little diffidence in placing before the public the history of our class. Yet, knowing that because of our ardent efforts in her interests we deserve a place in the annals of the school, we venture to relate the short story of our life. The class was brought into existence on the first Tuesday after school commenced, in September, 1900. Two of our members were new comers in Abbot ; the rest of us, eight in number, had been in school two or three years. All together we comprised the large class of ten. Our number was reduced later in the year by the with- drawal of two members. The College Seniors hold the proud distinction of having the first spread of the year. It was held in the class president ' s room and was a great success. The next event of importance was the play, written by two mem- bers of the class, an adaptation of Because She Loved Him So, which was given shortly before the Christmas vacation. This was 29 the first play of the year presented by the girls, and owing to the hard work of those managing it and to the clever acting, won great applause and was talked about for a long time afterward. The Vaudeville Show, which took place during the early part of the winter term, although not a College Preparatory entertainment, but participated in by members of all the classes, had for its originator and head a College Senior. We are a very athletic class. One of us is president of the newly formed Athletic Association, nearly all have been on the basketball team in former years, besides working hard this spring on our own account, to produce a victorious team on Field Day. One of us is a prize runner, who won last year the fifty yard dash, with the remarkable record of ! One of us also won both the slow and fancy bicycle races. As only the Seniors and Senior Middlers are allowed to play baseball on Field Day, we cannot show what shining lights we are on the diamond. So we shall have to be content to stand aside and give our best support to the Seniors. If we had had a longer life, much more might have been said to our glory, but still we hope that after school is over here we shall be heard of in the different colleges towards which we have been struggling for so many weary months ; and, also, that the class which follows us will not entirely forget the college class of ' 01.

For lives of richest service lent, For strength of love that lay Below a faithful ministry, We would our love repay ; In every inmost grateful thought, Be near to you today.

Soft the winds murmur the lindens among ; As the work the reward, are the words that are sung. Silently, softly on earth ' s soft green breast, Tenderly, tremblingly deep shadows rest ; Bright golden sunbeams and fields brilliant green, Round and about us our colors are seen. Modestly, lowly the sweet daisies grow, Fair, simple flowers with beauty aglow ; Semblance of promise to all who are sad, Pleasure and brightness to all who are glad. Tenderly, trustingly, hearts ever true, Lovingly, joyfully, friendships renew; Loyally, gayly for Abbot we sing, Fearlessly, sweetly our glad voices ring. Loyally, sadly our class, nineteen-one, Bids a farewell to the tasks that are done, Trustingly, hopefully greets the new day ; Past pleasures darken but ne ' er fade away. Seeing our new hopes in deep fuller light, Climbing and striving to stand on the height, Fearlessly, bravely, the new fight begin ; As the work the reward, are the words that we sing.

Mercer Mason 54 An Extract from the Green Fairy Book. Not many years ago, the twenty-third of September, a little Prep, skipped blithely along a path in the grove, fingering her Newly Ac- quired Abbot Pin. The Prep ' s to (she spelled it that way) long braids Wobbled gaily as she penetrated the oaks farther and farther. At each step the shadow of the trees grew deeper and darker. But all of a sudden she descried, sticking up out of the ground not many millimeters away, a yellowish green post ! It bore a striking resemblance to one in No. 7, which she had lately learned from her elders it was considered cunning to ornament with pencil. But imagine her decomposition when she beheld, sitting before it on a pedestal like Lorenzo di Medici ' s, a beast ; (the Prep, imagined her situation might be entitled Beauty and the Beast. How strange !) But to go on, please. The Beast was busy with a piece of India rubber erasing Cupids and Gibson men and 7,904,123 nameless scrawls. His painful task was so engrossing that the Prep, had time to observe him before he detected her presence. His body was mottled brownish, like the covers of note books. This was mostly concealed, however, by countless leaves of books which had been stuck on to him by Le Page ' s Liquid Glue. His left side was adorned principally with familiar quotations from Algebras and Geometries. He had a predilection for lengthy examples in affected quadratics, and one aspiring variable quantity stretched out into his gesticulating tail. His right ear flap bore the legend Amo, amas, amat, though the object of this sentiment was not, as we shall see, the Prep. A pony was attempting to trot briskly up one 55 leg. Dissertations on lie and lay, sit and set were uncomfortably numerous on his back. But most wonderful of all was his red Tarn O ' Shanter ! On nearer inspection this proved to be an enormous bottle of red ink, though how so much happened to be on hand, un- used, is a puzzle. The beast was softly humming some elocutionary selections, but broke off suddenly at a sneeze from the Prep. She knew it wasn ' t polite, but just couldn ' t help it. On discovering her the Beast mechanically gave a gesture of mock respect. As he sur- veyed her more critically, however, he crotcheted his brows and glanced darkly at the half-erased post, Quis hat cela factum ? he demanded, licking his chops. Oh I will be eaten ; nobody shall help me! shrieked the Prep., and before she knew it she was. But — alas for ye beast ! Giving one prolonged, Bronlognon- eishgron he fell from the pedestal and lay, one great, mathematical, linguistic heap on the turf. I oughtn ' t to have caused her death ; she wasn ' t ready to di-gest yet. She — was — too — Green ! Be gone dull care, I prithee, be gone from me. Edna Wright Present in body, but absent in spirit. Harriet Smith, in class Happy am I, from care I am free. Why can ' t they all be contented like me ? A let t a He gem an 56 Abbot Mother Goose. I. There ' s a dear old school That stood on a hill, And if it isn ' t gone It stands there still. If. Hi diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle Can both make a wailing me-ow ; But I think from the noise which comes from above The Glee Club has taught them how. III. Sing a song of sixpence, there was a girl named Ri. She bought a bunch of violets and left them on the sly, And when the door was opened the violets came to view, Now isn ' t that the kind of game that ' s played by very few ? IV. There was a girl in our school And she was wondrous wise, She batted balls across the field And caught the highest flies. But when the Seniors beat us, Next year with might and main, She gathered the team together And we won ' t be beat again. 57 Both adorned their age, One for the study, t ' other for the stage.
