Page sir THE KENT SCHOOL Foreword HE Class of 1936 has prepared this volume in an effort to bring to all those interested in Kent School a complete and accurate record of the activities and organizations of the School, pictorially and verbally, during the Spring and Fall terms of 1935 and the Winter term of 1936. We wish to thank Mr. Clifton K. Loomis for his excellent and valuable assistance as literary critic, and Mr. R. P. Titus for his generous advice concerning the financial details involved in the production of this annual.

TEAR BOOK 1936 enough to accommodate the School comfortably, but the building also provided rooms for the help, and additional rooms for the boys. Plans were again pushed for the enlarging of the School plant and this time came to fruition when the new Norman Chapel and North Dormitory were begun in the spring of 1930. Both were completed and used before a year had passed and were decided and permanent improvements to Kent. In l93Q a record enrollment of two hundred and ninety-eight students was reached, and since then the mark of two hundred and ninety-nine has been main- tained, the Headmaster wisely refusing to allow the School to grow above three hundred. The School was brought to its present status as regards buildings with the erection of the Sports Building in 1934, the gift of the Fathers' Association. The debt incurred in erecting the other buildings was erased for good this fall when the long term mortgage was paid off. For the first time in its history the School is in a completely solvent state with no debts. If this history has concerned itself mainly with the physical aspects of the growth of Kent School, it is because the rest is too subtle to be caught directly, and may better be inferred from the actual accomplishments rather than from any amount of direct explanation. The whole-hearted enthusiasm of Kent's begin- ning persists now, and we have tried to catch it in these pages, and. in expressing the forms of Kent life we hope to have conveyed some of its Havor. Concisely, the part we wish to bring out most is Father Sill. Without him Kent would be just another school. With him it is Kent, a statement that speaks for itself. And Father Sill is Kent. Thirty years have come and gone. One son of an Alumnus has already grad- uated, another is to graduate this year, and there are many more now in the lower Forms. We pause at the end of the first generation to consider the accomplish- ments of those thirty years, and more and more we must realize that Father Sill has effected whatever of value has been accomplished. The School has built up a reputation already, but this speaks not so much of the School as it does of Father Sill. He has seen the School progress rapidly and become famous. Another might have been content to rest on laurels earned, but Father Sill has never ceased his endeavor to better the School. Taking as a standard a motto of Doctor Arnold of Rugby he has lived up to its fullest implications-"Aim at success, but never think you are successfulf, We cannot adequately express the debt we owe to Father Sill. He has meant to us the best part of our lives at Kent, never failing to help or advise us when we needed aid, and going out of his way to make inti- mate personal friends of us all. It is with the deepest sense of respect for him and of gratitude for what he has meant to us, and more particularly to Kent School that we, the Thirtieth Anniversary class, dedicate this chronicle of Kent's thirtieth year to its founder and Headmaster, Father Frederick Herbert Sill, 0.H.C.
