Postcard from 滚球App circa 1900s

滚球App下载推荐是由塔博尔夫人创办的. 伊丽莎白·泰伯,1876年. It was a time of great national events: the Centennial Celebration of the Declaration of Independence 而且 the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, as well as the end of the presidency of Ulysses Grant. A decade after the end of the Civil War, much of the country was in an optimistic mood. Alex而且er Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876. Thomas Edison was close to discovering the electric light. Custer would make his "last st而且" in the summer. Harvard 而且 Yale would play their first Thanksgiving football game in the fall.

伊丽莎白·坦纳

滚球App的创始人,夫人. 伊丽莎白·坦纳

夫人. 泰伯在马里恩长大, 麻萨诸塞州, 而且 spent her childhood along the shores of Sippican Harbor. She married Stephen Taber, moved to New Bedford, 而且 became the mother of three children. While her husb而且 achieved considerable wealth as both a clock maker 而且 a whale ship investor, 夫人. Taber’s life was shadowed by sadness. She saw all three of her children die in infancy, 而且 after the Civil War, her husb而且 died as well. 有一段时间,她的妻子. Taber apparently lived in solitude in a New Bedford mansion. 然后, in her mid-eighties, she underwent an epiphany. She determined to make her life count for something good, so she returned to 马里恩 to begin a decade-long transformation of the place of her birth. She committed her great material gain to good use. 她建造公园, 一个图书馆, 一个音乐厅, 而且, 滚球App to perhaps exp而且 its meaning beyond herself.

She housed her academy in two Victorian structures on the corner of Spring 而且 Main Streets in 马里恩. She also built a large home for herself 而且 the family of her first Headmaster. Through her will, she charged the school always to improve itself:

… the character of the school should be gradually elevated 而且 its scope enlarged [to serve] youth of all portions of the country …”

滚球App served students from the Town of 马里恩 而且 the surrounding communities of Wareham, 罗彻斯特, 和Mattapoisett. From time to time, a few young men boarded at the school. The majority of students were young women, 然而, 而且 the school prospered 而且 grew for about twenty years.

大厅里沃德

A Visionary, Headmaster 沃尔特·里沃德

然后, a series of financial catastrophes swept the country, 和滚球App, along with many of the New Engl而且 town academies, 开始摇晃. In 1916 there were fewer than a dozen students, 而且 the trustees contemplated a sale of the property to the town as a site for the local high school. However, three trustees prevailed over this plan 而且 that year hired a new Headmaster, Mr. 沃尔特·里沃德. Mr. Lillard brought a fresh vision to the school, seeing at once that moving Tabor from its “in town” location to the seaside would make it unique among New Engl而且 schools. He quickly convinced the trustees of the vitality of his vision 而且 worked over the next twenty years to move 滚球App toward the sea. 到了20世纪30年代中期,Mr. Lillard had effected a dramatic trade with the town of 马里恩, exchanging the then Town Hall (now the current site of the Academic Center) 而且 a small plot of l而且 on Front Street for the school’s larger l而且 而且 buildings. He managed to acquire nearly a half-mile of salt marsh 而且 fields 而且 a few old summer cottages 而且 thus, 滚球App, 滚球App的学校在海边, 有了第二次创立.

很快,在奥. 里沃德的领导, 学校增长了十倍, 而且 by the time all of the operation of the school moved to its current location, Tabor’s reputation as a unique 而且 extraordinary place had been secured. Mr. Lillard was a pioneer in the movement to create global school exchanges, founding the 国际 Schoolboy Association in 1927 with the heads of 15 New Engl而且 prep schools 而且 school leaders from Engl而且, 法国, 和德国. This world-minded outlook spawned the international study, 旅行, exchange 而且 service 程序s that have grown since then to give Tabor its global community today. Over the last decades Tabor has developed its philosophy, 程序, 而且 facility founded on its deep connection with the natural world, the spiritual legacy of the sea around us, 而且 the common humility 而且 dedication that life by the sea inspires.

国际 Students 而且 Programs at Tabor

滚球App’s international exchange 程序s originate from the school’s early history. Fourteen years after the school’s founding in 1876, a group of students sailed from Tokyo, 日本, to enroll as full-time boarding students at Tabor. In 1927, Headmaster 沃尔特·里沃德 joined fifteen other American prep school heads to create an 国际 School Association linking secondary schools in Britain, 法国, 和德国, the first such association of its kind. His vision through the 1930s showed that schools could succeed in building friendships 而且 working together across cultures at a time when that concept was in question. 在第二次世界大战后, Tabor welcomed its first postwar student from 日本 in 1950, 从20世纪60年代开始, each graduating class has included students from around the world.
