In 1908, Marvin T. Duncan founded the Duncan College Prep School for Boys on the spot of what is today Vanderbilt University Memorial Gym. Duncan, his wife and colleagues strove to impart stern discipline and lasting wisdom on their students. After Mr. Duncan passed away due to ill health, the school closed it's doors in '52.
One young man in particular had a hand in carrying Duncan's legacy to Brentwood Academy in Nashville, TN. BA is now home to the remaining Duncan School alums and serves as their gathering place to remember fondly the lessons and laughter from over seventy years ago.
In an effort to commemorate their history alongside Duncan alums across the country and raise awareness of the Duncan School story among the young Brentwood students, BA asked that we capture and craft stories from the alums themselves. This is what we put together.
