Neat finds and fun stories

Biddeford High-Waterhouse Field Trivia!

Here is a fun tidbit I came across this afternoon while transcribing our History Index Cards (which will be in spreadsheet/database form in the near future for EVERYONE’S convenience!)

“Alfred L. Waterhouse will be honored Friday night [SEPTEMBER 24, 1954] , as Biddeford High’s home field, long known as “Alumni Field”, becomes officially “Alfred L. Waterhouse Field.”  (Biddeford Daily Journal, September 21, 1954: p.1 c.1).  –Another story ran in the paper that Satuday (September 25, 1954: p.1 c.1) all about the re-dedication of the playing field.

So now you know–the day that ALUMNI FIELD officially became WATERHOUSE FIELD was Friday, September 24, 1954.
