As a member of the standing committee of the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Museum, I wish to state my appreciation for the Gazette now placing the Coolidge quote on freedom of the press at the top of the opinion page. It is especially timely since Thursday, March 4 was the 100th anniversary of Coolidge’s inauguration as vice-president of the United States.

He originally came to the valley to attend Amherst College and remained here for his entire adult life. His inauguration in 1921 coincided with the college’s centennial celebration. I do not know if Coolidge ever attended any of the school’s festivities that year but he was always proud of it and sent his son, John, there in 1924. He relied on fellow Amherst alumni such as Dwight Morrow, Harlan Fiske Stone, Frank Stearns and Bruce Barton as advisors during his presidential term.

This year the college is planning a somewhat muted bicentennial celebration and after 200 years of existence, Coolidge remains the school’s most famous graduate as well as Northampton’s best-known resident.
