As part of a sound management strategy, the moose hunt has been an annual event in New Hampshire since 1988. The moose population, which was only approximately 50 animals in 1950, had grown to over 4,100 by the time of the first moose hunt in 1988, when 75 permits were issued, primarily for the northern parts of the state. The success rate for that first year of the moose hunt was about 76 percent. Today, New Hampshire's moose population is estimated to be approximately 4,000 moose. For those lucky winners who take part in the hunt, it is often the adventure of a lifetime.
On May 28, 1969, Pomfret School’s library was moved from a single room in the main school building to the newly created Henry B. du Pont ’16 Library. The foresight in design of the building has withstood the years extremely well and has allowed for adaptation to the new technology of the 21st century. In an attractive, comfortable, and contemporary setting, the library sits at the center of campus and is the primary resource of materials for academic investigation. The principal mission of the library is to foster both the development of skills and a comfort level with library use that can be applied in any library throughout a lifetime of learning.
