The Cumulative Value of a St. Albans Education

William Nutting ’55 and Ogden Nutting ’52 have made a STRIVE Campaign gift to support the chaplaincy and the religious studies program at St. Albans. William recently returned to campus to comment on the gift.

Cathedral services, daily chapel, homilies by the headmaster, Christian history and theology—all were part of a St. Albans education in the 1950s. But so were many things.

“As adolescent kids, we were running around having a good time,” says Bill. “We weren’t necessarily concentrating on the religious side of the school.”
