In this feature, you’ll see some of our favorite images from the Brewster archives to tell just a sliver of that story—including this shot of a baseball game in front of the Academic Building at the very end of the 19th century. We look forward to sharing even more photos and insights as our observance of Brewster’s 200th birthday spills into the new year!
Meet Suzanne Morrissey, the new editor of Brewster’s magazine, who shares a bit about her somewhat unusual professional path to Wolfeboro in her inaugural Editor’s Note, as well as her gratitude for the warm welcome she has received: “Time and again parents, students, and faculty have told me, ‘There really is something special about Brewster’,” she says. “How true! A thread of devotion to alma mater runs through this place, as does a deep sense of care for students that is present in every meeting, at every event, and in every class.” Do you have some fresh story ideas for Suzanne? She’s all ears! Contact Suzanne at email@example.com.
