Remembering Gus Trowbridge

Manhattan Country School Founder Gus Trowbridge

Gus Trowbridge, Manhattan Country School’s founder, founding director and lifetime trustee passed away Sunday, July 9, 2017, after a long struggle with vascular dementia and cancer. Gus had a lifelong impact on MCS students, teachers he mentored, and educators and policymakers at the forefront of making schools accessible, equitable and high quality. He gave us the courage to be bold and to take our responsibility for a more just and sustainable world seriously. We celebrate Gus and the impact he and Manhattan Country School have had on generations of families.
