Biographical/Historical Note:
The Office of Development and Alumni was created in the early 1960s under M.C. Paget and Bob Ballentine. In the 1990s John Anderson became Vice President and Director of Development. Over three decades, under the direction of a number of directors, the Office became more involved in alumni activities and senior activities. In the late 1980s, the Office began to sponsor the Senior Breakfast and Senior Slide Shows for the Senior Banquet prior to graduation. As a result of these activities, the Office of Development and Alumni became the repository for thousands of photographs and photographic slides.

Scope and Content:
Arranged in chronological order by graduating class, this eclectic collection of color and black-and-white photographic prints covers roughly the period 1960-1996. Photos from GMA classes of the 1960s include mostly yearbook photos and candid shots, including some board members, coaches, and faculty. The Class of 1962 includes board members Ben Johnson and Tim O’Brian. Photos of WA classes beginning in 1971 include graduation related pictures, homecoming, senior superlatives, and candid yearbook shots. Photos for WA classes 1988-1995 are almost exclusively Lower School class yearbook pictures, color, 8x10.
