Notable Alumni

Phillips Academy and Abbot Academy have produced many hundreds of noteworthy alumni – some remarkably obscure,
some internationally known.

One of the 13 students who attended Phillips when it opened in April 1778 was Levi Hutchins, later inventor of the alarm clock. Among the 70 students who attended Abbot when it opened in May 1829 was Henrietta Jackson, later (as Henrietta Jackson Hamlin) a missionary in Constantinople.

From Olympians to bishops, from scientists to educators; from journalists to presidents; actors to philanthropists, artists, physicians, entertainers, CEOs, diplomats, Nobel laureates, conservationists, explorers, philosophers, admirals, poets, engineers…the fields of endeavor are legion, the accomplishments endless.

Our notable alumni Web page will always be a work in progress. We present it in a two-part format. The Short List contains just 100 thumbnail profiles. It provides, in brief, a sense of the range of interests and achievement among Andover alumni. The Long List of notable alumni, including more than 1500 men and women, appears in chronological order by century and decade. The purpose is to introduce these remarkable individuals and all they have done.
