Name of creator
The Edgehill Old Girls Guild was formed by Blanche L. Lefroy, lady principal of Edgehill Church School for Girls, in June 1901. Any female student who attended the school for two years and who left in good standing was eligible to join the guild. The motto was "Fideliter" which means "Faithfulness." In 1985 the Edgehill Guild, or as it was also known, the Edgehill Old Girls Association, and the Kings Old Boys Association amalgamated to form the King's-Edgehill School Alumni Association. The Edgehill Guild was run by a board that was composed of the following officers: president (was the principal of Edgehill School until 1959), and secretaries from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the United States (later to be secretaries of circles), an editor of the magazine, and a general secretary (later called secretary-treasurer). Presidents were: Gena Smith (1917-1919), M.H. Roechling (1919-1946), Barbara Briggs (1947-1954), Jean O'Neill (1955-1958), S.E. MacDonald (1959-1962), Miss Fowler (1963), Frances E. Jost (1964-1965), Ruth Taylor (1966-1968), Elizabeth Wainwright (1968-1970), Marie Eaton (1971-1972), Marjorie Fountain (1973), Karen Mann (1974-1976), Pat Covert (1976-1978), Jane Ritcey (1979-1980), Janet Rowe (1981-1982), Carol Mosher (1983-1984), Joan Doehler (1985).
