Bowdoin College, this Museum’s home, is holding its 211th Convocation today. Welcome back to all returning students, and welcome to Bowdoin, Class of 2016!
Robert Peary graduated from Bowdoin in 1877 - this photo is his graduation photograph. Bowdoin’s class of 2016 will graduate 139 years after Peary. Maybe some famous alums of the future are attending Convocation today!
