Mather Kimball “Kim” Whitehead ’31
Outstanding Athlete, Scholar and Friend. Winner of the coveted ‘02 Emblem, Kim Whitehead personified the meaning of school spirit and fellowship. His prowess as an athlete was matched only by his accomplishments in the classrooms and halls of Pingry. A quarterback and captain of the 1930 Football Team, outstanding basketball guard, second baseman and three-year baseball veteran, and irrepressible swim meet organizer, Kim went on to become a star quarterback and captain of his team at Yale. Off the playing fields, he served with equal ardor as Editor-in-Chief of The Pingry Record, Literary Club Secretary, Student Council Representative, member of the Dramatics and Glee Clubs, and enthusiastic organizer of dances. As a scholar, he won the Second Fowler Prize for Public Speaking, the 1930 Whitlock Plane Geometry Prize, and the 1929 Second Scholarship Prize. Dedicated to his teammates, his versatility, energy, humor, and gentle friendship earned the respect of all who knew him.
