Arthur Clarke Boyden (1852-1933) succeeded his father as Principal of Bridgewater State Normal School in 1906. When the school was renamed Bridgewater State Teachers College in 1932, Boyden officially became the school's first president. An 1871 graduate of the Normal School, A.C. Boyden taught briefly in Boston before returning to Bridgewater as a teacher, becoming assistant principal in 1896. After the December 1924 fire, which destroyed a number of school buildings, A.C. Boyden led the campaign to rebuild the campus. Boyden's death in 1933 ended the connection between the Boydens and Bridgewater that had lasted for over seventy years.
