A Different Path

This page is dedicated to the Northfield girls and Mount Hermon boys who were members of the Class of 1970 who, for one reason or another, were not in attendance on graduation day. Some were with us a few months and others a few years. Feel free to share a memory you have of these classmates in the Comment section below.

  1. Submitted by Gene Ward: Daniel Brenton was one of my roommates freshman year in Cottage Two. Our room looked out over the football field. Danny decided he needed to bulk up so he purchased Charles Atlas’ bodybuilding course from the back pages of a comic book in the winter of 1966-1967. He’d throw open the two double hung windows at 5 a.m., and, wearing nothing but his underwear, perform “Dynamic Tension” exercises as prescribed by Mr. Atlas. Meanwhile, I am fully clothed and under a stack of blankets to fend off the frigid wind howling through our room. So, Danny, wherever you are, thanks for that…

  2. I think there were girls in the 1970 Highlights who were not at graduation. Students seemed to disappear whether for health or disciplinary reasons. There was a lot going on in the outside world and Northfield was not immune to those changes.

  3. Dixie Witzel is missing from the MH list. I went to his house at Thanksgiving freshman year. What a stupid riot we had. I had a license so I drove and we ended up at a sand quarry somewhere west of Wellesley. I don’t recall just how much trouble we were in, but I do remember pretty much driving the front tires off the rims and breaking the gas pedal where it pivoted on a pin. Not sure how we got it home, either. The next night we went to see Hendrix at the Garden. Well you might guess how that went.
