Deep sadness today in the Providence educational community: Anne Burnham and her husband David Burnham, have both died within the past two days. Anne died on June 4 and Dave this morning.
Dave Burnham was the legendary longtime headmaster of the Moses Brown School and the founding president of the Board of Trustees of Paul Cuffee School in Providence. As headmaster of Moses Brown from 1978 to 1994, Burnham helped usher co-education back to the college prep school on Providence’s East Side. He also was instrumental in increasing the school’s endowment.
