Have Camera, Will Shoot: 2016–17 Hall Fellow Eleanor Bingham Miller ’64

May 19, 2017

“Path? There was no path,” says Eleanor Bingham Miller ’64, and laughs, when asked how she ended up in documentary filmmaking. When she graduated from Concord Academy, the medium she loved, television, was dominated by the studio system, and by men. So it was a chance encounter with a new technology, a small, portable video camera — the Sony Portapak — along with an irreverent inclination, that launched her career as a pioneering videographer and documentary producer in the early 1970s.

CASA Food Drive Ends Tomorrow, May 10

May 9, 2017

The Concord Academy Students in Action club (CASA) is hosting the Grand Grocery Challenge until tomorrow. The Grand Grocery Challenge is a food drive in which our goal is to raise 1,000 food items for Open Table, a food pantry with locations in Concord and Maynard that serves around 300 guests a week. We’re hoping for as many students as possible to participate by bringing in nonperishable food, toiletries, and household items, such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing and laundry detergent, reusable shopping bags, diapers, and baby wipes. The class that brings in the most items will receive an ice cream party. We would greatly appreciate if parents could remind their children to look through their pantry and find a few items to donate. Thank you!
