The Archives is in the process of digitizing its film collection. There are approximately 750 reels of moving image film of varied subjects from the 1920s-1980s. Here are some sample clips from the 1940s and 1950s. Watch for Mr. Boyden!
Once a week, School Meeting begins with the singing of one of Deerfield’s school songs, and at every Sunday sit down dinner the whole school comes together and sings the Evensong. During the spring term, as seniors prepare to graduate, they are called upon many times to join in the Evensong. All the songs hold special meaning for students, alumni, and faculty alike.
In most cases, digital scans can be provided. Contact the Academy Archives if you are looking for a specific archival photograph.
Frank Boyden was Deerfield’s longest serving headmaster from 1902-1968. His time at Deerfield is captured in John McPhee’s 1966 book, The Headmaster. For additional information, please contact the Academy Archives.
