David Koch Named Lifetime Trustee

  1. Does anyone who cares about the “independent” academy find it humorous that Deerfield’s science center is named in honor of a hard science denier?
    Or that the US constitution disallows lifetime terms of our politicians because it is known to jeopardize the freedom and independence of our people?
    I bet Mr. Boyden is rolling in his grave.

  2. I would assume not only Mr Boyden as Wick Beavers suggests,but his dear wife, the chemistry teacher, might also be rolling in her grave. So Mr Boyden’s aspirations was certainly to have a loyal alumni who would support the school and Mr. Koch certainly fulfills that critera. And his generosity is impressive. But to uniquely honor someone with such clear political beliefs as an exemplar of the Deerfield ideal is a bit much for some of us.

  3. Mr.Koch has a perfect right to his political beliefs because as I last recall the USA is a democracy, and the kids who have benefitted from Mr.Koch’s generosity -to attend one of the finest schools in the United States -can only feel gratitude to him, in my opinion.
