Duxbury 
Massachusetts 




Time assistance, advice, cooperation, and support are the main factors in 
the compilation of our yearbook. We the seniors extend our appreciation to Mrs. 
Bassett for her advice and untiring assistance and to Mr. Wood and the faculty 
for their cooperation and aid in its publication. Last but not least we extend 
our gratitude to the student body, the townspeople, and the merchants who made 
this book possible. 



2 




Although we are leaving, we can never forget the two people who gave us 
their patient understanding, their whole-hearted support and their willing help. 
The recognition, the friendliness, and the advice which we received from these 
two people during our high school career can never again be experienced in quite 
the same way. By correlating courses in English and Social Studies, these two 
teachers and friends have tried to prepare us for the future. For these reasons 
and for many others, the Class of 1951 dedicates this yearbook to Mrs. Bassett 
and Mr. Wood. 




To Members of the Class of 1951: 

Please accept my sincere congratulations on your graduation from 
the Duxbury High School, and my best wishes for your success in the 
years ahead. 

Those of us who are older recognize all too clearly that as the 
years roll by life becomes more and more complex. Yesterday things 
seemed to move slowly, changes occurred infrequently and we seemed 
to be in a period marked by steady but slow progress. There was time 
then for a high school graduate to adjust to the demands of a waiting 
world. Today all of the activities of society seem to be moving ahead 
at an ever accelerating pace. Added to this there is the restlessness 
and fear which always goes with uncertainty. Graduation into this kind 
of a world is a vital and engaging challenge to each student and will 
require the very highest qualities of good character, iear thinking and 
hard work. I am confident that the training you have received in the 
Duxbury High School will help you to meet this challenge with success. 

Sincerely yours, 



Superintendent of Schools 





Letter to the Class of 1951: 

Fifty thousand high schools will graduate more than a million young 
people this year. The physically qualified men will enter the military 
services either directly or through college R.O.T.C. units. Only total 
mobilization is likely to affect the girl-graduates' plans. The members 
of the Class of 1951 all over the nation may be asked to surrender some 
of their personal freedoms to preserve the larger idea of individual 
worth. 

Those of you who defer your educational or vocational plans to enter 
military service will emerge from training more able to select a career 
wisely. If the past is any guide, Congress will grant scholarships or 
a G.I. Bill so that you, the new veterans, may attend universities, 
technical schools or receive aid to start businesses. Consider your 
whole future, not just the immediate months ahead. 

May the faculty commend you as young men and women for the 
mature manner in which you have acquiesced to thi; military needs of 
the nation without self pity, and have continued to plan and look to the 
future. Your example should develop new confidence in the intellectual 
approach to problem-solving. Congratulations and good luck! 



Principal (for the faculty) 




EDWARD PAUL APRIL 

Ed 

Ed was voted the most sophisticated boy in 
our class, but we will remember him for his 
interest in shop work. He is a hard worker 
and has often produced some revolutionary 
results while working on the mechanical end 
of dances and plays. His charming, friendly 
manner assures him of many friends in the 
future. 



THOMAS REDMOND BARCLAY 
Tommy 

Tommy's magnetic personality has won him 
many friends here at Duxbury High, and his 
flirtatious manner always has the girls 
flocking around him. Tommy is a hard 
worker and can be counted on when a job 
has to be done. In choosing the Marines he 
undoubtedly has an exciting future to look 
forward to. 





EVERETT PATRICK BORGHESAM 
Borgie 

Borgie's always excelled in the field of 
sports and was one of our stars in basket- 
ball. He seems to have that certain something 
that the girls go for and is quite a Casanova, 
but he is a hard worker and has done out- 
standing work in mathematics. With his eye 
for the latest in sharp clothes and his neat- 
ness of dress, he'll make a big hit at 
Dartmouth. 



ANN LOW BUTLER 
Patty 

Patty is our Senior Class President and has 
earned that position by proving her relia- 
bility. Climaxing her three performances in 
the Annual Tournaments of Plays, Patty's 
characterization of Mrs. Bartruff in the Senior 
Play certainly made a big hit. "Grannie 
Annie" has mothered us all through many 
trying moments. With this ability she will 
be a success at Wheelock and as a kinder- 
garten teacher in years to come.

CARL ARTHUR CARLSON 

We all got a kick out of the serious manner 
in which Carl portrayed the elderly minister 
in the Senior Class Play. He's really just 
a prankster at heart, but he is also sensible 
and hard working. With his artistic ability, 
he could be a commercial artist some day. 
But we guess the Army already has his 
number. 




HARRY BRADFORD GLASS 

Did someone mention a play? It must be 
Harry who never misses a hit that comes to 
Boston. Harry has always been the spokes- 
man for the college division, one of the 
reasons being his ability to argue intelli- 
gently. Northeastern will be gaining a good 
student when Harry leaves D.H.S. We will 
always remember the good job he did as 
judge of the Student Court. 



WILLIAM EDWARD BUTLER 

Billy 

With that friendly smile and winsome way, 
Bill is never without a pal. Whenever you 
want to find him, just look at the top of the 
stairs, and there he will be. With the 
efficiency Bill has shown as head marshal, 
whipping his subordinates into a cooperative 
team, we are sure he will go far in his 
chosen field. 




ROGER BRADFORD FREEMAN 

Roger is a mystery to most of us. We often 
wonder what hidden charm there is behind 
that shy, quiet manner of his. The best of 
luck to you at your forestry school, Roger. 





FRANCES SHIRLEY HAGBOL RNE 
Franny 

Franny will always be remembered by us as 
a willing, cooperative worker and as a girl 
who is fun to have around. Her sense of 
humor is keen, and she always keeps us 
laughing. Franny hopes to go to a secre- 
tarial school where we know she will be a 
big success. 



PATRICIA FLORENCE HIGGINS 
Pat 

Voted the most mysterious, Pat is one of the 
nicest and quietest girls in our class; some- 
times she is one of the most sensible too. 
We all know that Pat is going to be a very 
good wife some dav because she possesses 
all of the necessary qualities. We wish you 
the best of luck, Pat. 



ALVIN AUSTIN MARKS 
Al 

Because of his shy, quiet manner, we often 
wonder what the other Alvin is like. His 
interest seems to be in cars and what makes 
them go. Next time your car needs repairing 
we recommend Alvin for the job. 




RICHARD HIGGINS 
Higgle 

Need a leading man for your new play? Call 
Higgie; you'll know he's sensational if you 
saw him as Dr. Fuller in the Senior Class 
Play. He is also a member of our cheer- 
leading squad and we know they're going to 
miss him next year. We hear Higgie plans 
to continue his dramatic career after gradu- 
ation. Good luck and best wishes for your 
success, Higgie. 





JACQUELIN EMERSON MARR 

Everyone's acquainted with Jackie's spark- 
ling personality and sophistication. We hear 
her winning ways have given her quite a 
name as a heart breaker. Whether it is 
college or a man, her future is assured. 



WILLIAM ALVIN MERRY 

Bill 

Bill is another of the less conspicuous 
members of our class. After graduation he 
plans to continue working for his father; but 
some day, if his dreams come true, he hopes 
to make the grade as an airport manager. 





NATALIE ANN MOSHER 
Nat 

Natalie is our class flirt. We often see her 
flirting here and there in search of excite- 
ment or to get the latest bit of gossip. If 
she can settle down long enough, we feel 
sure that with her background in shorthand 
and commercial subjects, she'll make some 
lucky boss an efficient secretary. 



EDNA RUTH NEWELL 

Edna has a carefree, jovial manner and is 
always willing to help where she is needed. 
She is one of the student leaders in the 
Home Economics classes, and appears to be 
quite successful. Her desire to help people 
has guided her toward a career in attendant 
nursing. 





ROBERT MICHAEL SHEEHAN 

Bob 

Where there are girls around, you'll find Bob. 
When there's responsibility to be taken, 
you'll find this peppy, young Casanova 
ready to cooperate. With the art of being 
boss well mastered, we feel sure he'd make 
an excellent sergeant in the Army. 



ALPHEUS HOLMES WALKER 
Alphie 

Alphie's our "Junior Einstein" and is really 
a whiz at those A. A. and Student Council 
treasury books. He seems to be interested 
in the design of airplanes. We wouldn't be 
surprised it some day we were flying in one 
of his creations. We know that his good 
nature will win him many friends in the 
years to come. 



JOSEPH PAUL SAMPSON 
Joe 

Joe is one of the quieter members of our 
class, and we don't hear very much about 
him. Whatever his plans for the future may 
be, we wish him the best of luck.

MARILYN LOUISE STARKWEATHER 

With all the courses in Home Economics that 
Marilyn has taken, she ought to make some 
man a nice wife one day. When there's a 
school supper to be put on, you'll find 
Marilyn at the head of the list of volunteers. 
Her ambition is for a career as an airline 
hostess, and we hope she'll be successful. 





DANIEL MALIN WHITE 
Danny 

Danny is our champion in the soccer field. 
For two years now, he has been elected to 
the Eastern Massachusetts Second All-Star 
Soccer Team. He has proved his leadership 
ability to us by being a successful A. A. 
president and a captain of the basketball 
team. With his jovial, friendly manner and 
his leadership qualities, it is a cinch that 
Danny will be a success in whatever he 
does. 



JUDITH LORING WIRT 

Judy 

You say you want some art work done? 
Judy's the girl to do it. With her good 
nature and her good sportsmanship paving 
the way to success, we are sure Judy will 
do well at the School of Occupational Thera- 
py. Her winning smile will gain her many 
lasting friends in the future as it has here 
during her high school years.
