INTRODUCTORY.



Leonard H. Bulkeley of New London, born December
22nd, 1 791, was the son of Captain Charles Bulkeley, an
officer of the United States Navy, who served with distinc-
tion under Paul Jones during the Revolutionary War; he
was also a descendant of Rev. Gershom Bulkeley, one of
the early ministers of the town and a leader among the
Puritan Divines of New England. The mother of Leonard
H. Bulkeley was Elizabeth Hallam. He was a man of
quiet, unobtrusive ways, who stood well in public estimation,
and is remembered by those of his time now living par-
ticularly for his independence of thought and strong ad-
herence to his opinions — a man of convictions. In early
life he had been a merchant, and to his own savings was
added a competency inherited from his father. Being, at
his death in 1849, without family or near kindred, he left
the bulk of his estate to found and maintain a free school
for boys, to be called Bulkeley School.

His intention, as appears by his will, was that this school
should "/''t' ahuays free to all male youth between the ag;es of twelve
and twenty years who shall be resident of and have their homes in the
city of New London,'' and who pass a satisfactory examination.

He directed that the pupils be ''instructed in morals and in
such branches of learnini^ and science" as the Trustees in charge
of the school may from time to time prescribe; and ex-
pressed the wish that no ''priest or clergyman be ever employed
as a teacher in the school."

In 1850, the Trustees named in the will, were incorpora-
ted. By the will and by their charter, their number is
limited to five; and as vacancies occur they are filled by
vote of the remaining Trustees.

The property turned over to the corporation upon the
settlement of the Bulkeley estate amounted to about $21,000,



11

and this was allowed to accumulate until in the year 1871
it had reached the sum of $70,000, when the erection of
the present building was commenced upon a plot of ground
given by the city for that purpose.

The school was opened in the fall of 1873 and superseded
the Bartlett High School, which had been chiefly supported
by taxation as a part of the common school system of the
town.

It is intended that the educational advantages afforded
by this Institution, shall be such as are usually attainable
at High Schools and College Preparatory Schools; but, as
a great majorit- of its pupils complete their scholastic edu-
cation here, it has been the aim of Trustees and Teachers
to adapt the required cowrse of study to the needs especially
of such pupils. Those, however, who desire it, have the
option of taking a more extended classical course and thus
obtaining a thorough preparation for college.

Prior to the year 1884, the Regular course of study occu-
pied four years. It has now been reduced to three years,
the fourth year being made optional, and called "The
Graduate Year." While open to all who have completed
the work prescribed for the previous three years, this addi-
tional year is designed especially for those who intend to
apply for admission to the academical or scientific depart-
ment of some college. It is believed that the change of
the regular course from four years to three, meets with the
approbation of parents and scholars, and will result in the
graduation of a larger proportion of those who originally
enter. Each pupil satisfactorily completing the three
years course, is entitled to a certificate signed by the
Trustees and Teachers.

The school building, designed by Eidlitz of New York
and built of granite, in the most substantial and thorough
manner, at a cost of nearly $40,000, is of fine architectural
proportions and effect, and is justly regarded as an orna-
ment to the city. A full length portrait of the founder^
painted by Harry I. Thompson of New Haven, hangs in
the principal room.

The collection of a School Library has been commenced



12



by the acquisition of about one hundred volumes, mostly
encyclopedias and other books of reference.

The Trustees, as required by thei-*' charter, publish an-
nually a statement showing how their property is invested.
Their funds now amount to over $68,000, par value, includ-
ing $5, 000 received from the estate of the late Henry P.
Haven, and known as "The Haven Endowment," $10,000, a
legacy from the late Asa Otis, which has been designated as
"The Otis Endowment," and "the Bartlett Fund" amounting
to $3,200, which was transferred to the Trustees by the city
of New London. None of these endowments were donated
for any specific object, and the income derived from them
is used for the general expenses of the school.

The statement published by the Trustees on the 2nd day
of January, 1888, showed the property then in their hands
to be as follows, viz:



45 shares Union Bank, New London par value,

The Edward L. Porter Prize.



A copy of Webster's Unabridged Dictionary is awarded
at the close of each school year to the pupil who has shown,
by the regular recitations and examinations, the greatest
proficiency in the Latin of that year.

memory of her son, Capt. Edward L. Porter, who was

The following have been the recipients of the prize since
its foundation in 1883: —
