Alumni



"Do you remember your first awed glimpse of the auditorium’s frieze, engraved with the names of illustrious BLS alumni - Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Hancock, George Santayana? You felt as though you had wandered straight into history."


~ Clifton R. Wharton Jr. '43, 1970 Distinguished Graduate, in his keynote remarks during the BLS 375th Anniversary


Notable Alumni

Gracing the walls of the Auditorium are portraits of past head masters (view these on the BLS History webpage) and the names of several BLS alumni, many synonymous with our great country's Who's Who. These serve as a lasting reminder of our enduring history and tradition. Generations of BLS students have imagined their name among these historically significant alumni immortalized on the upper frieze. The lower frieze recognizes alumni whose volunteer and philanthropic efforts have ensured the prosperity of alma mater.

The listing below features centuries of former Latin School students who have gone on to be leaders in a variety of fields. Notable alumni include five signers of the Declaration of Independence, a Nobel Laureate, captains of industry, as well as visionaries in the arts and sciences. Since 1954, the Distinguished Graduate Award (formerly the Graduate of the Year Award) has been given each year to alumni exemplifying the BLS motto, sumus primi.
