CLIFFORD O. T. VVIEDEN
At the end of the present school year, Mr.
Wieden will sever his connection with the Gor-
ham Normal School to become principal of the
normal school at Presque Isle.
During the sixteen years that Mr. Wieden
has been an instructor, coach, athletic director,
counselor, and friend at Gorham, he has con-
tributed much of standing value for the beneht
of the school as a teacher-preparatory insti-
Mr. Wieden was born in Wilmington, Dela-
ware. When he was still young, his family
moved to New Haven, Connecticut, where he
began his elementary education. At the age of
seven, he moved with his family to New
Sweden, Maine. There he attended a rural
school, and later' commuted to Caribou High
School on the electric cars. He attended Colby
College for one year and then transferred to
Arcadia University in Nova Scotia. At Arcadia
he majored in Biology and minored in Chemis-
try. After receiving his B.S. degree from that
school he became sub-master of Mapleton High
School. He left Mapleton to come to Gorham.
During his service here he has been furthering
his own education by attending Bates College
during the summer sessions, and there he
earned his Master's Degree in Education. He
has also earned credits toward his doctorate at
Boston University, majoring in Educational
Measurements and Social Sciences.
This thorough training, together with six-
teen years of service here at Gorham have
placed him in an enviable position in the edu-
cational field in Maine. Among the subjects
he has taught here at Gorham are Economics,
Sociology, Educational Measures, Political Sci-
ence, and Introduction to Teaching. All of his
classes have enjoyed his arguments, his inclina-
tion toward statistical realities, his sly wit, and
his invigorating manner.
Besides his work in his classes, he has been
coach of basketball, he has introduced and
coached track, and has encouraged athletic com-
petition between New England teacher training
institutions. As athletic administrator, he has
urged the adoption of a closer school-student
financial cooperation in buying equipment.
Cutside of his work here at Gorham, his
talents as organizer and administrator have
been recognized, he has been elected President
of the New England Teachers' Athletic Con-
ference and Secretary of the Western Maine
Approved Basketball Officials.
Mr. Wieden and Mrs. Wieden have taken
an active part in the community life of Gor-
ham. Mr. Wieden has been a past ofiicer in
four lodges of the Masonic order, is a member
of the Congregational Church, and has been
interested in all town affairs. Mrs. Wieden is
a member of the Eastern Star, has been Presi-
dent of the Woman's Club, and has taken an
active part in the Ladies' Circle, Cosmopolitan
Club, Community Club, and Social Club.
Gorham is going to miss Mr. Wieden
greatly, but Presque Isle is benefiting by our
loss. The whole school joins in wishing Mr.
Wieden and his family best of luck in their
