The Acacia Traveler, November 1966

(click on image to enlarge)(click on image to enlarge)

I recently found this copy of the Traveler among a box of records belonging to the corporation board. If any other alumnus has any copies of the Traveler from 1951 to 1971, and also during the late 1970s and early 1980s, your help in obtaining copies for historical research would be greatly appreciated.

Northcote by Arthur Gibb '90

(click on image for larger view)

This portrait drawn by architect Arthur Gibb of the Williams Family house at 318 Highland Road hangs above the fireplace mantle of the library. The Williams saved this portrait and left it with Northcote when sold to Acacia in 1934. Although it might have been a pleasant reminder to Edith Clifford Williams of her family's home, she could always look outside her window and up the hill from her house at 322 Highland Road. The portrait stayed with the house, where it belongs, and where it shall remain.
