Form Plaque: 1888


The following description was written by John Gregory Wiggins in the June 6, 1929 edition of the Horae Scholasticae:

This being the year of the great blizzard, we have icicles shown to mark the fact.  A hare and hounds’ bicycle race took place this year (upper left).  (Upper right) a peculiar animal on a shield.  Some such animal was seen that spring on an ice block floating down the pond.  There was much discussion as to whether it was an otter, mink or beaver.  This, too, was an outstanding cricket year.  Also the cricket horse ran away (lower left). VI, V, and IV form football clubs were organized: VI, black and red; V, white and red; IV yellow and black.  This is heraldically indicated in the lower right hand corner.
