In Fall of 2021, Boys Republic students were able to use the 100-inch telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory. The telescope was completed in 1917. At the time, it was the world's largest telescope. Edwin Hubble used the telescope to sow that the universe extended beyond the Milky Way galaxy. Students spent the evening with the telescome-staff beding introduced to the history of and viewing of planets, including Jupiter and Saturn, and distant galaxes, millions of light years away.
As the actors waltzed in the twilight, the young audience members sat mesmerized. Amélie, a whimsical daydreamer, finally found the courage to meet her love interest face-to-face. Though the students might not consider romance their favorite genre, they were riveted.
Generous gifts of a 211-acre farm, schoolhouse, dormitories, and multi-purpose buildings mark women’s visible contributions to early Boys Republic. Notable mother and stepdaughter Mrs. Margaret Fowler and Miss Kate Fowler augmented these gifts with less visible contributions to neglected, at-risk youth. Mrs. Fowler’s rural farm provided students with invaluable lessons in honest labor and responsibility, while Miss Fowler’s founding of the Pasadena Auxiliary raised community support for Boys Republic.
Larry Capalbo significantly sweetened the Teaching Bakery’s offerings on February 12: the owner of Taylor Freezers Equipment donated professional ice cream machinery to Boys Republic’s bakery. Mr. Capalbo’s generous gifts included an industrial ice cream maker, a display freezer, various ingredients, and a recipe book. Bakery students gathered around Mr. Capalbo and a student volunteer as they illustrated how to sanitize, prepare, and use the ice cream maker.
