May 1867 – Headmaster Samuel Taylor expelled five Seniors for cutting class. Twenty-four of the 42 Seniors protested by cutting school to go to a circus in Lawrence and shouting catcalls as they drove by Taylor’s house; they were expelled as well. In 1903, 36 years later, all those expelled were reinstated to the school after a vote by the trustees.

The Philomathean Society was originally founded in 1825 by four students who, after not being admitted to a fraternity because they were not Seniors, decided to make their own society. The society’s original purpose was not debate, but, according to Philo’s constitution, “mutual improvement.” The main “debates” that occurred in Philo’s first few years regarded which books were most suitable for the society’s library.


First published in 1857, The Phillipian is Phillips Academy’s weekly student newspaper. Entirely uncensored and student-run, the paper is distributed every Friday from September to June. The Phillipian is 12-16 pages long and consists of five sections: News, Commentary, Sports, Arts and Features. Each issue reports on campus news, athletics and performances, publishes insightful opinion pieces and provides original humor. Students are the writers, editors and principal subjects of the paper. Headlines, lead photos and profiles preserve student accomplishments and create a window into the Andover community. The Phillipian serves as a forum for disuccsion. As the written voice of the school, it creates a network on campus and in the far-flung Phillips Academy community through a common base of information. www.phillipian.net/subscribe This calendar was produced by The Phillipian Board CXXXV Facts From: “An Old New England School: A History of Phillips Academy Andover” (1917) – Claude Moore Fuess “Andover : the Face of Phillips Academy” (1983) – Mia Kelly ’83 The Phillipian Archives
