Charles C. and Ann W. Alexander Chair

The Charles C. and Ann W. Alexander Chair was initially established in 2007 by the Greenhill Family as the Charles C. and Ann W. Alexander Faculty Salaries Fund. The Fund became the Charles C. and Ann W. Alexander Chair by June 2008 as the result of many additional donations from Groton alumni and parents, family members, and other friends. Since 2009, Andres T. Reyes ’80 has held this Chair.

A Groton graduate of the Form of 1980, Andres Reyes spent his undergraduate years at Harvard, earning a classics degree, which he then took to Oxford, where he completed his doctorate. Andres remained at Oxford as a junior fellow at St. Hugh’s College until 1993, when he returned to Groton as a member of the faculty. In May 2011, he published an edition of C.S. Lewis' translation of Virgil's Aeneid (Yale University Press, London). In addition to teaching, Andres supervises the School's Debating Society (founded in 1884).
