Alfred E. Stearns, Class of 1894

Alfred E. Stearns of the Class of 1894 signed the flyleaf to his book An Amherst Boyhood to his friend Herman Cheney, also '94, noting that Mr. Cheney "needs no introduction to most of the scenes and characters mentioned in this book." Stearns was the grandson of President William A. Stearns, and son of William F. Stearns; Stearns Hall was named in honor of their three generations' contributions to the school.
