Albert Gardner Boyden (1827-1915) was a member of the 26th class of the State Normal School at Bridgewater, graduating in 1849. After serving as an assistant to both Nicholas Tillinghast and Marshall Conant, A.G. Boyden was appointed principal in August of 1860. For the next forty-six years A.G. Boyden strove to assure the school's reputation for academic excellence and the quality preparation of teachers for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. During his tenure the enrollment more than quadrupled and his far-sighted building program resulted in the construction of five major buildings. After resigning as principal in 1906, Boyden actively continued his association with the school, serving as principal emeritus and teaching classes until his death in May 1915.
