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.
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
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.
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
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 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
THOMAS REDMOND BARCLAY
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
EVERETT PATRICK BORGHESAM
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
ANN LOW BUTLER
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.
Duxbury Free Library
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
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
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
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 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
PATRICIA FLORENCE HIGGINS
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
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.
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
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 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
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
ROBERT MICHAEL SHEEHAN
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'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 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 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
JUDITH LORING WIRT
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.

job of Layout Editor and carrying out all her duties faithfully. We are grateful
