Welcome back from spring break! We hope everyone is re-energized and ready to tackle the rest of the spring semester.

During the break, library staff has not been idle. Ms. Slater, our archivist, put together this intriguing display on headmaster Ted Eames and the Cold War era at Governor's Academy.

It includes the dedication speech for the Alumni Gymnasium made by Admiral Halsey, Commander of Naval Forces in the South Pacific during WWII. Other interesting reproductions include a follow-up sheet for study hall behavior. Did you know that grinning or dropping his pencil were things a student was held accountable for during study hall?
