A Trip Back East

My educator wife had a conference in Manchester, NH so I had the perfect opportunity to visit D.A. and some old friends. We actually stayed in the Carriage House at the Deerfield Inn, which is recovering nicely from the latest flood. We toured Greenfield (who knew). More importantly, I was able to see John, Martha and Nora Knight in their element, which basically means that I had a front row seat to the “Nora Knight Huricane”. I even had a chance to talk with J.J. Briones who may have stolen Philip Charon’s bicycle from what I could tell. John Munro was in the area so we were able to spend some quality time with him as well. At the end of that dinner my wife remarked that everyone was so friendly and “well behaved” which must have been code. I considered it a “win” and left the subject alone. Thanks to the Knights and John Munro for telling appropriate stories about general DA (and Hamilton) events over the years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement.
