The Oracle Board takes pleasure in printing in this number a history of Bangor High School from 1835-1935. The Centennial celebration of our high school is of special interest this year, coming at a time when the whole country is joining with the citizens of Boston in celebrating the three hundredth anniversary of the Boston Latin School, the establishment of which was the beginning of free education in this country.

While free secondary education existed in this country as early as 1635, it was not, however, until 1821 that a free high school offered anything but college preparatory subjects existed. Only fourteen years after the founding of the first free non-classical high school, the Bangor city high school came into being. Since its establishment, March 4, 1835, the high school has been in continuous operation and has turned out pupils who in every walk of life have reflected credit upon their alma mater.

The material used in the history was obtained form the city government records, Williams' History of Penobscot County, and the Student's Record, a newspaper published at B.H.S. in 1886.
