John Mercer writing -- The year is 1954. This is my father, Tom Mercer at age 52. He was known at Governor Dummer Academy as 'Uncle Tom,' a name which became a confusion, what with his good friend 'Uncle Ed' Russell being at Hyde Bay. This was further confused in my mind by my having been brought up to refer to Emily Pickett as 'Aunt Emily'. Tom Mercer taught English at Hyde Bay from the late 1930's through the summer of 1956.
