LA Archives

Richard A. Jeffers Heritage Center
& Alan Whipple Archives

“Have enough pride in your past to share it with the future.”

With the opening of the Ansin Academic Building in 2004 came the space, finally, to create a true archive for the Academy.

Accordingly, the Richard A. Jeffers Heritage Center and Alan Whipple Archives were established in that year, thanks to the help and hard work of several dedicated people.

Most significant are the research done by faculty members Alan Whipple and Dick Jeffers and the writing of the Academy's history by alumnus Douglas Frank ’68. Parent Marjorie Clear (Alison '98 and Michael '01) searched through countless items stored in attics, and alumnus Larry Jacquith '63 collected, evaluated, and collated materials that added significantly to the project.

Paul Husted '64 has been an invaluable help and guide in the ongoing growth of the project.
