50 Photographs for 50 Years
Bement Through the Lens of Timothy C. Young '61


Timothy C. Young’s love for Bement began as a student during the 1950s and continued when he returned as a faculty member. Over the years, he served as a dorm parent, van driver, PE instructor, sports coach, and he taught computer programming, photography, and mathematics. He was also a long-time chair of the mathematics department and dean of students in the upper school. Mr. Young’s devotion to Bement was reflected in his legendary slideshows where he captured moments of work and play in every aspect of school life. His appreciation of children shines through his portraits and taken over the 50 years he worked at Bement, his artfully composed photographs of the campus also serve as a lasting record of the school’s history.

Tim began selecting photographs for this book in the year that he entered his 50th year working at Bement, but he was unable to complete the project. His wife, Amy Gordon P'99 '03, PF, and Bement's Alumni Office helped to complete the project and are pleased to share this photobook of Bement moments.

Upon Mr. Young’s passing, his friends and family chose to honor him by establishing the Timothy C. Young ’61 Fund to support financial aid and tuition remission for faculty and staff children attending Bement.
