Eagle Scout project on display
Andrew Stock, a member of the Pinkerton Academy Class of 2014, chose his school for a historical photo project to help him earn his Eagle award.
Andrew created a photo history exhibit now on display at the school’s Alumni Center, honoring teacher and headmaster Edmund R. Angell, who served as headmaster from 1876 to 1885.
Angell’s photos were reproduced from glass negatives donated by a friend of the family. Stock categorized the exhibit and offers a brochure with photos listed and what year they were taken. Some photos are of various buildings in town, Pinkerton students, classes, art and local churches. The exhibit is also honoring Pinkerton’s 200th anniversary in 2014.
