Bill Hinchliff ’64

Heritage Society member Bill Hinchliff ’64 has remained connected, supportive and involved with North Shore in so many ways: reunion committee member, Morning Ex presenter, steward of NSCDS history and coordinator many special alumni architectural and cultural educational tours in and out of state including Asheville, North
Carolina, Las Vegas and Chicago, to name a few. He has developed and strengthened the connection of alumni to each other and the School. His commitment to the School is an example to all of his “Live and Serve” spirit.
WHAT COMPELLED YOU TO MAKE A PLANNED GIFT TO NORTH SHORE?
It was the most exciting educational experience of my life—light bulbs flashing on left and right—better than grammar school, college and graduate school, though the latter gave North Shore a run for its money.

WHAT PART OF YOUR NORTH SHORE COUNTRY DAY EXPERIENCE HAS REMAINED WITH YOU IN YOUR LIFE?
A love of classical music, inspired by Vincent Allison; a love of literature inspired by the great English teachers I had through all four years; and admiration for great teaching in general, inspired by my German, Latin and history teachers.

WHAT DO YOU HOPE YOUR PLANNED GIFT WILL ACCOMPLISH FOR THE FUTURE OF THE SCHOOL?
That it will continue the traditions of splendid teaching, exposure to the wonder of the arts, and community that it has fostered for 100 years.
