Jack Williams statue unveiling
HEADMASTER JACK H. WILLIAMS '38
On Thursday, October 14, alumni, faculty and staff, administrators, friends and the Williams family gathered for the unveiling of the statue of former Headmaster Jack H. Williams '38 in front of Williams Hall.
Mr. Williams spearheaded efforts to save Boys' Latin from closing its doors forever in 1960. He, along with his brother Bayard Williams '31 and others, worked tirelessly to relocate Boys' Latin to our Lake Avenue home. In 1962, Mr. Williams became Headmaster, serving until his untimely death in February of 1978. He took Boys' Latin from a school of fewer than 200 students and built it into one of the finest private schools in the area. His generosity of spirit endeared him to students and families, and faculty and staff, and, without his dedication and devotion, Boys' Latin would not exist today.
