Jeffrey Campbell

An historic gem of The Putney School campus, the former cow barn was converted to a theater early in the school’s history. It served that purpose until 1994 when it was condemned by the fire marshal.

For more than a year Putney School had nowhere to put on plays. Goaded by Vasya Dostoinov ’97, the trustees agreed to put the renovation of the barn theater on a fast track, and the renovated Jeffrey Campbell Theater was dedicated at Harvest Festival in the fall of 1996. A major portion of the money for the project was a gift of Josh Goldberg ’75, with the stipulation that the theater be named for Jeffrey Campbell, who taught English and had a hand in many other activities at Putney from 1951 – 1983.
