Mandeville Family

Pictured above (circa 1937): 
From the left: Ernest W. Mandeville (father of the three boys), Hubert Turner “T” Mandeville, Ernest W. “Peter” Mandeville, Jr., and Michael L. Mandeville.
Hubert Turner ‘T’ ‘40 and his brothers Ernest W. Jr. “Peter” ‘38 and Michael L. ‘41 were students at Ridley on bursary help as sons of an Episcopal minister, Ernest W. Mandeville.  All three attended Yale University following Ridley. A fourth son, Charles attended the Lower School. They were always appreciative of this assistance and their subsequent generosity to the school is legendary. One needs only to walk the campus to become familiar with the Mandeville name. ‘T’ was made a member of the Board of Governors in 1965, and in 1969 was the incoming vice-president. He brought to the Board the major financial support from his family foundation, as well as an intimate knowledge of what was happening in the greatest of the New England independent schools. It was ‘T’ who endorsed the more dramatic innovations of the 1970’s and who provided funds for the new cadet uniforms in 1969. During the Second Century Campaign, it was a sizable gift from the Mandeville Family Foundation of New York which made a huge impact. In May 1989, The Mandeville Theatre was opened, named for the family who helped see it realised. ‘T’ Mandeville died on May 20, 2002 in New York City at age 79.  Following in the family footsteps: Peter’s sons Michael R. ‘62 (who sadly died of leukemia in 1961) and Geoffrey ‘67 and Michael’s son Tom ‘70 and daughter Michelle ‘95.
