William Dwight Chandler


William Dwight Chandler attended St. Paul’s School from 1875 to 1881 and is a member of the Form of 1880.

The Winter 1926 edition of the Alumni Horae (pg. 94) contains this information about Chandler:

Willie Chandler was at St. Paul’s from 1875 to 1881 and he will be affectionately remembered for his many attractive qualities, but particularly for his unfailing good humor and for his lively interest in all forms of School activities. He was a fine football player and in his last year was Captain of the School Football Team. Being of a robust physique he was a good oar and rowed on the Shattuck Crews and he retained his interest in the boat races all his life. After leaving the School he traveled abroad for two years, returning to Concord where he became the publisher of the Concord Monitor. He was always active in Republican politics in New Hampshire. At the time of his death he was Postmaster at Concord, and it was largely due to his interest that the Post Office at St. Paul’s School was installed. . . During all the years of his residence in Concord he was an influential and loyal supporter of St. Paul’s and the School is indebted to him for very many acts of consideration and kindness, not only during the time of his Postmastership but during the period when he was publisher of the Concord Monitor.
