History’s Mysteries

Helping Out in the Archives

Wim Hart working in the Archives

After retiring from teaching English, I wanted to stay involved with Cardigan, to keep “in the loop” as they say. Walking around campus, I stumbled upon Director of Archives and Special Projects Judith Solberg. I thought that working with Ms. Solberg, if she wanted help, would be a great way for me to keep in contact with the School. Ms. Solberg said she could use some help, so I came in one day a week throughout the fall and winter. It was wonderful; I schmoozed in the teachers’ room during my tea break and got a free newspaper and lunch!

My job centers around putting hundreds of loose photos in particular folders, depend- ing upon what facet of school they depict. One project involved putting portraits of boys in separate folders and adding the boys’ graduation years. I became very intimate with the Blaze, the school’s annual yearbook.

But some pictures are pre-Blaze and in others I wasn’t able to identify the subjects. It’s funny (strange) how I can remember the names of boys I dealt with in the 1970s and 1980s much more clearly than I do of those in this century.

I am asking the alumni to help me identify any of the boys’ photos found below. If you have any information, please contact Judith Solberg and me at archives@cardigan.org or complete the form. Thank you!
