, -.1-Hg I , . f . 2, .p.-1..l.-. 1 It was some years before his death in 1762 that William Dummer. Lieutenant Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony realized that the colonies must produce their own leaders. It was for this purpose that he unselfishly left his home and lands for the establishment of a school which came into existence in the year 1763. This was the first act of many to follow over more than two centuries which have brought us to Governor Dummer Academy in the year 1984 . . . the Academy's two hundred twenty-first. It was William Dummer's thought that such a school would train young men for service to their fellow man. He could not be blamed for not realizing that those leaders would also be young women. The present school motto can be traced back by taking a quick look in Schumann Science Center where a plaque hangs by the west entry. This plaque tells of the generosity of seventy-one alumni who made possible the construction of Lang Gymnasium in 1925. In 1971, Lang Gym became Schumann Science Center. At the bottom of the plaque appears the phrase "NON SIBI. SED ALIISH - Not for self, but for others. The year 1983-84 has seen a rebirth on the emphasis of growth - not just for one's own benefit, but so the indi- vidual may help others. We are greatful to Mr. Bragdon for bringing a great tradition of service into sharper focus by making an obscure phrase into the school motto - NON SIBI, SED ALIIS L. The four legs upon which a school stands are its faculty, its students and their parents. and its alumni. The Academy has been blessed in its re- cent history by having unique conti- nuity in its faculty. In the year 1930, Headmaster Ed- ward Eames brought new vitality to the school and a group of faculty who were to serve until their retirements over the past decade. This group be- came affectionately known as the Old Guard and included Mr. Eames, Ar- thur Sager, Mac Murphy, Tom Mer- cer and Ed Dunning. who were joined soon by Ben Stone, Buster Navins and eventually john Witherspoon. Mod- ern day governor Dummer was mol- ded by these men with their 304 years of service. A new "Old Guard" has now emerged with men of long service to the school and its students. They are still active and include Heb Evans. Dave Williams, Doug Miller, Bill Sperry and Bob Anderson. Their total time of service now amounts to one hundred fifty-two years of teaching.
