Away the fears of ignorant
Let thy tides far carry
Me to see the rising sun.

The Alumni Gymnasium, built with the gener-
ous gifts of the Alumni, friends, and the Charles
Hayden Foundation, is the first new building
Thompson Academy has seen since the construc-
tion ofthe three dormitories in 1911-1.
It is a massive, white, wood structure with an
arched roof held in place by 7 laminated Wooden
arches, each weighing in the vicinity of 6000
pounds. The central part of the gym houses a regu-
lation size basketball court, 3 storage rooms, and
a drying room. On the upper floor there are two
locker rooms, two shower rooms, an office, and
the main lobby. On the left as one enters the lobby,
there is a mahogany trophy case donated by the
Massachusetts Bay Yacht Club Association.
The entire building occupies an area of 18,000
square feet and is the northernmost structure on
the island. It was built by the William Bailey Com-
pany and designed by architects Rich and Tucker.

Thompson Academy is on the very threshold of truly great and wonderful things.
It is the sincere hope of the Trustees, Alumni, and the Staff that the envisioned Reno-
vation and Development Programs, now on the drawing boards, will be in existence
in time for our 150th Anniversary in 1964. Some of these projects are a complete
face-lifting and modernization of the Main Building, refurnishing the boys Dormitories,
creating a new Laundry, establishment of a first class Laboratory in the Power House,
establishment of a first class wood working shop and Mechanical Drawing Room
on the second floor of the Power House Building, building of four new Dormitories,
building a modern and up-to-date Classroom unit which will contain the additional
classrooms needed for expansion, a first class library, vitally needed Shop areas
fautomotive, metal, machinej, Faculty living quarters, two more athletic fields, etc.
On top of all of this, we must find added sources of revenue to maintain the program
and strong efforts are being made by the Trustees to face up to this harsh reality. We
have a forward looking program and are diligently working to implement it.
It is all worthless, however, unless we have the boys who can inspire us to work
with and for them. The Class of 1961 is such a Class and it is my pleasure to wish
them God-Speed in their ventures out into the world. It has been real fun working
with them and may they always think kindly of us.

The year 1961 marks the first graduating class that has gone through the four
year curriculum since the name Farm and Trades School was changed to Thompson
Academy in 1956. As a class We feel proud to be this class and hope that our memory
is perpetuated on through the classes to follow.
As Freshmen we elected Larry Matson President, Carleton Hill Vice President,
and Harold Hanna Secretary-Treasurer.
As Sophomores We elected Vlfilliam Poulack President, Carleton Hill Vice Presi-
dent, George Sayer Treasurer, and Thomas Parker Secretary.
As Juniors We elected Thomas Parker President, Jerry King Vice President, and
Robert Hanes Secretary-Treasurer. Harold Hanna and Larry Matson were chosen Stu-
dent Council representatives. It was in this year that the Beatnik Dance, the Christmas
Auction, and the Fall Hayride were sponsored by the Junior class. The class also made
a substantial contribution toward the purchase of the score clock in the Alumni Cym-
nasium. Members of the class participated in all events and were active in Varsity ath-
As Seniors we elected Thomas Parker President, Larry Matson Vice President,
Harold Hanna Treasurer, and Robert Hanes Secretary. Harold Hanna was chosen
Student Council President and Michael Veglas was the senior Student Council repre-
sentative. The class sponsored the Columbus Day Auction, the Senior Class Auction,
and the Senior Prom. The class achieved a very high academic standing, participated
in Varsity athletics, and was active in non-athletic activities.

1960 Varsity Football
The 1960 Football season was one which will
probably be talked about at Thompson for years
to come. Starting off with Coach ,lack L. Maddox
and an entirely new set of ,plays the Commodores
sparked for their first undefeated season in more
than five years.
With the arrival of fullback, Phil Strother, and
Halfback, Robert lldefonso, the backfield gained
strength and speed unmatched by any team on the
schedule. Strother, who was famous for his long
touchdown runs and strong defensive tackling, was
named HAH Schoolboyw in the Boston district by
,.L.a.l. I I HI
the Boston Herald. Bob Ildefonso with his strong
end runs characterized the Thompson team and their
chiefly ground offense. Ends, Cohen and Woods, did
not see too much passing action, but both scored
on a few aerial attacks called by quarterback, Ralph
Patterson. With the loss of Matson, Cohen, Strother,
Ildefonso, Hanna, and Mitchell from the first team,
Coach Maddox will have a big rebuilding job on his
hands in 1961. He will be working with some vet-
eran starters and a Well-polished second team and
is confident though that next year's team will be
as good as the '60 squad.

1960 J.V. Football
The Junior Commodores pushed forth to vic-
tory with five wins and one tie in the Varsity's
shadow. The Middlesex and Roxbury Latin games
at the beginning of the season had many thrills
and tense moments as the boys began to warm
up and show teamwork. Rivers couldn't score
against our line and went home tired and score-
less. Governor Dummer put up a hard fight,
keeping the air tense until the end but they
couldn't close the gap. The second Roxbury
Latin game indicated very well what a season's
experience and practice could do for the JV's,
crowning our season 20 to 6.

1961 J.V. Basketball
The ,I.V., the first year an actual squad, as such, was organized, did remarkably
well against some tough opponents. Starting center, Bob Marston certainly did an
excellent job under the boards, beside being a crack shot from either corner. An added
asset to the squad was tall man, Billy Maddox, who got his share of rebounds and
jumps. A starting team, other than the two mentioned would be difficult to name. Craig,
Gaucher, Richardson and Bernie Woods, could usually be found in the first lineup.
