Cardigan’s Fourth Decade

The Cardigan Archives has a rich collection of media from the School’s past.

We began sharing digitized items from our collection as part of Cardigan’s 75th Anniversary celebrations in 2020-21, and this work continues. On this page you’ll find items that reflect life at the School from 1975–1984. If this content brings a part of your own Cardigan experience to mind, we hope you will share a reflection with us.
