Overview

Excerpt from Albert Gardner Boyden and the Bridgewater State Normal School: A Memorial Volume

The identification of Albert Gardner Boyden with the Bridgewater Normal School, practically from 1848 until 1915, makes it possible to write a history of the school largely in his own words. Selections have been made from a great variety of sources, and organized in a running narrative. The purpose has been to give vivid word pictures of the school from period to period as it developed under his leadership. The continuity of ideals from the earliest years to the present time is a feature of this school that is unique. It is hoped that the personal touch will add to its value among the graduates. Certain characteristics of Mr. Boyden will be apparent in the narrative, - his strong personal interest in his students and their success; the gradual development of his ideas of teaching into a definite and logical philosophy; his persistent efforts to build up the material interests of the school in spite of repeated failures with reluctant Legislatures; the fixed purpose to prove all things and hold fast to that which he so sincerely believed to be true; the consistency with which he lived out his beliefs.

The pen pictures in the last chapter give the reflection of this life from the eyes of the graduates of different periods, and thus complete the picture of the history of the school.

This work has been done in loving memory of an honored father.
