1750-1831 Dear Stephen Girard: In a short while the ninety or so boys in our class will turn their backs for the last time to the age-worn pillars of Founder’s Hall. It seems but a short time ago that each one of us looked at that building for the first time. Its towering columns and massive stone blocks were ominous and foreboding. We were dwarfed by its towering height. Today Founder’s Hall means more to us than its designer could possibly imagine. It has a warm and sentimental glow and not the dim shadow we once beheld. Founder’s Hall is the symbol of our days at Girard. Those happy hours when we play¬ ed and worked with our friends or prepared to leave on vacation, and those unhappy times when we longed for home or maybe received a poor report card, lie along its galleries. Among them are the pride in that first soccer goal and that swollen black eye, the mishap of a disagreement with a classmate. But beyond the huge, brown doors of Founder ' s Hall there is another mon¬ ument of deep meaning—a statue of you, Mr. Girard, standing as you were when we entered Girard as little boys. It seemed that you were watching each one of us every day. You reminded us that we were your sons, and we left obligated to make you proud of our heritage. Now there are new challenges ahead, and we must leave our Alma Mater be¬ hind. But as we leave, Mr. Girard, each one of us will take along the spirit and the meaning of the school and home that we knew as your foster sons. But, most of all, we will take with us the image of you standing on that pedestal and the expression on your face that seems to reflect your unforgettable wisdom: " My deeds must be my life: when I an dead my actions must speak for me.” Yj aii ( jYunr, 956

At this hour of parting from the home and school of our past decade, the Class of 1956 salutes those wonderful people who have been our teachers, our friends, and our guides. May they live long in Girard with the energy, the good will, and the wisdom which have inspired us to do and to think our best at all times.
