When Mike Babcock '48 retired from Polytechnic School in 1998 after 18 years as Headmaster preceded by 15 years as the Upper School Director, he left behind a legacy of dedication and love for the place where he spent more than 60 years of his life.
As a student at Poly, Babcock was well aware of the consequences his mischievous acts could cause, and he recalls how one day in middle school: "A teacher picked up a fellow by the seat of his pants and his shirt and threw him out the door of Gosney like a torpedo.
Babcock described his time at Poly as "pure fun." But once, before security guards patrolled the campus, Babcock and trustee Stender Sweeney were assaulted by several armed men.
