GLSBLA Association Alumnae Events – SAVE THE DATES!


We have heard from many of you regarding the annual meeting and alumnae reunion – which usually takes place this Saturday at GLS on Huntington Avenue. This year, we decided to change the date of the alumnae reunion event at Huntington Avenue so that our Board members could enjoy or take off Columbus Day weekend. So, we have rescheduled that meeting to June 3, 2017.

We are currently planning to hold a reunion event for the Classes of 1937-42-47-52-57-62 and 67 on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at GLS on Huntington Avenue as we have done in past years. We will be sending out invitations, but please save that date. Class agents for the years 1937-42-47-52-57-62 and 1967 will be reaching out prior to the event to help gather their classes. And remember, all GLS alumnae are welcomed to attend!

We are also hosting a class-wide GLS Alumnae Reunion open to all alumnae on Thursday November 17, 2016 at The West, 1732 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA. The event will be in the downstairs function room from 7-10 PM. It is free to attend – with a cash bar! We hope many in the area will choose to attend and this will become an annual Thanksgiving event.

Please let us know if you have any questions! Hope to see you soon.

John Tetlow Portrait Frame

On August 24, 2016, Massachusetts College of Art allowed the GLS/BLA Association to reclaim a long lost frame to an important portrait. The frame belongs to the portrait of John Tetlow, the first headmaster at GLS who served from 1878-1910. Tetlow’s portrait, commissioned by the GLS Alumni Association, was completed by Ernest Epson in 1910. The portrait was hung in a built-in ornate frame in what was the library at the GLS on Huntington Avenue. When the school moved to Codman Square, the portrait was taken out of its frame and the frame remained behind.

A four man crew delicately removed the frame from the bookcases and transported it to Boston Latin Academy where it will be re-installed. The portrait is currently undergoing restoration with Oliver Brothers and we look forward to bringing the two back together later this year!
