A Place to Live Deep

❝ EDWARD B. HINCKLEY ’24, A.M. ’26, Ph.D. ’32, says the BULLETIN’S recent (October 28) article “Lighthouse Ahoy!" spoke to his condition, for in 1950 he bought Beach Point Light at Sandy Neck, Barnstable, Mass. “It serves our family as Thoreau’s hut by Walden Pond served him,” writes Hinckley, “a place where we can ‘live deep and suck out all the marrrow of life . . . live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life‘ (my wife says it is occasionally too ‘Spartan—like’; but we are comfortable enough with an outboard on the skiff, our own well, a telephone, bottled gas, Aladdin lamps, and the certainty that all social obligations are two miles away across the harbor!).”

“It is my conviction that every man—like Antaeus—is apt to lose something of his original strength when cut off from contact with his native earth,” he continues. “Hinckleys have been living high on Cape Cod clams, quahaugs, lobsters, oysters, blueberries, beach plums, corn, cranberries, mackerel, cod, and tuna, not to mention whales, for over 300 years in Barnstable. I can remember clambakes in the shadow of the Lighthouse fifty years ago; and each summer when I cross the Cape Cod Canal bound south and east I gratefully inhale ‘an ampler ether, a diviner air.’ Nor are we lacking for neighbors: some of the first families of Barnstable, including Henry C. Kittredge ’12, own cottages down the beach.”

Formerly president of Babson Institute of Business Administration and afterwards executive coordinator of Dana Hall Schools, Wellesley, Mass., nowadays when he closes up the lighthouse for the season Hinckley heads for Orlando (Fla) Junior College of the Universality of Orlando—office of the dean of the faculty. ❞

Trump is clamping down on White House protest. Be very afraid of what comes next


It hasn't gotten the attention it deserves — almost nothing does anymore — but since July 16, a colorful and boisterous protest has taken place every single night in front of Donald Trump's White House.

In case you had any doubts about U.S. priorities.

❝ As Kushner and his father-in-law see it, the partnership has paid dividends in the form of Saudi pledges to purchase billions of dollars worth of U.S. weaponry ❞
