Faculty Fun Facts

WMA's outstanding faculty also thrive outside of the classroom. Here are a few featured in our Spring 2019 edition of Academy World.

David Allen

Faculty, Middle School History 

Mr. Allen spent Christmas in Gilmanton, New Hampshire, where Grace Metalious wrote “Peyton Place,” which was based on that town. The murder that was part of that famous book actually happened there. Also, America’s first known serial killer, Herman Webster Mudgett, was born in Gilmanton and claimed his first two victims in the town. Mr. Allen said, “I don’t always plan holidays around murder sites, but everybody needs 
 a hobby.”
