1965 HALIGOLUK DEDICATION
As Headmaster of The Haverford School, Dr. Leslie R. Severinghaus has executed his duties at Haverford with much wisdom and zeal. He realizes that the future depends on the young men of today, and he has dedicated his life to their future, and well-being. It is with this giving from his heart in mind that we dedicate the 1965 Haligoluk to Dr. Severinghaus.
Dr. Severinghaus has been with Haverford for many years. He joined the School staff as head of the English Deparmtent in 1929 and held that position until 1942, when he became Headmaster. In addition, Dr. Severinghaus holds many other positions, such as membership on the Board of Trustees at Cornell University and the Council for Religion in Independent Schools, and membership in the Country Day School Headmaster's Association (he was its President in 1960-61).
He is also active in such international organizations as the International School Services, the Experiment in International Living, and the Y.M.C.A. We of the Senior Class regard with much admiration and gratitude the integrity with which Dr. Severinghaus has advised and influenced every person connected with the School. The Haligoluk feels that this dedication is but a small tribute to the many years of excellent service that Dr. Severinghaus has rendered to Haverford.
