EHS alumnus Cuthbert Buckle Class of 1910 was shot and killed at the 1916 Battle of Somme during World War I while leading a charge against a German line, the first of the School’s 22 fatalities in the conflict. Found in his belongings was a letter from then-Headmaster Archibald Hoxton, Sr.
In December of her senior year at Episcopal, Lauryn King ’17 found out she had been accepted to Dartmouth, her dream school. Yet no sooner had she victoriously closed out one application process then she began another.
Apart from Hoxton House, Episcopal’s front drive is the School’s most enduring landmark. For 180 years, the long, tree-lined approach to campus from Quaker Lane has stirred powerful emotions, no matter the generation of applicants, students, faculty, and alumni.
Earlier this school year, Episcopal purchased two new Pocock 4+ (four rowers plus coxwain) shells for the crew teams, offering naming opportunities that resulted in two very different but equally powerful campus moments recognizing individuals who have left an indelible impact on the community.
