I can honestly say it never occurred to me that Governor Dummer was a funny name for the prep school until the administrators decided to changeit. Now alumni are mad and newspaper columnists are pokingfun. Not exactly a brilliant PR strategy: How many people, really, were making jokes about the school's name until the school itself took the Dum and Dummer cracks nationwide?
You want a tough name? How about this place's? How about the name of their magazine? One has a mental image of Kaiser Bill in pickelhaube squirreled away in a campus attic. Did they keep their name during the war years?
