After seeing the British Museum’s recent publication of The History of the World in 100 Objects, and The New York Times’s “History of NYC in 50 Objects,” it was hard to resist creating our own list with the remarkable treasures found around the school.
Thus, we have begun the History of St. Bernard’s School in 25 Objects. Here are a few selected objects from what we have put together so far. Our list, at present, has 19 items–leaving enough room for Old Boys to chime in and make a few suggestions. Better yet, if you have an object in your own collection, we welcome you to email an image of your artifact to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a description and estimated date. Thank you in advance for contributing to a virtual collection that will no doubt rival those already assembled both here and abroad!
