The Westtown Meeting House, a gift of Arthur and Emma Foster Perry, was dedicated on Alumni Day, 1929. Present for the ceremony were the donors (in the photo, seated at center) and special guest First Lady Lou Henry Hoover (seated to the left of Mrs. Perry) along with the largest alumni crowd in the prior history of Alumni Day. As a symbolic commitment to the Quaker roots of the school, the Class of 1902 presented an English ivy plant taken from the Fenny Drayton church where George Fox, early leader of the Quakers, was baptized. The ivy was planted by the new meeting house, and grew on its north wall into the 1980s.
