Schools. — The list of principals of the high school, as given on pages 206 and 221, was from the recollection of high authority, the city records not giving a full list of teachers. All records of the High street academy and the earlier years of the high school have been lost, and the memories of those who were students in those schools in years past differ as to their recollection of the full list of teachers. Some of these old pupils confound the principals of the academy and high school on the basis that as the academy was merged into the high school they were essentially one and the same. Combining the principals of both schools, verbal authorities give the list as Jonas Burnham, F. Yeaton, Hawes, Granger, Blanchard, A. B. Wiggin, J. T. Huston, J. L. Newton, L. Dunton, S. B. Goodnow, Wood bury, Crosby, Galen Allen, George E. Hughes, H. E. Cole, which, as far as can be gathered, includes all those who have been the teachers without regard to order of dates of their employment or in which school they taught. The most reliable list of principals of the high school alone, as obtained from the recollection of several who have been students, is: Goodnow, Woodbury, Wiggin, Crosby, Newton, Dunton, Allen, Hughes.
