Honoring 100 Years of Respectful Rivalry

The famous rivalry between Choate Rosemary Hall and Deerfield Academy traces back to a football game arranged by two colleagues, friends, and headmasters: George St. John of The Choate School and Frank L. Boyden of Deerfield Academy. With the help of the School Archives, we are able to trace the history of the friendship between the two heads of school, the first game played between the two schools, and how the competition expanded over the years to include additional sports and social events around a legendary fall weekend known as Deerfield Day.
