Centennial Anthology was published in 2000 to mark the centenary of the Old Bostonian Association, which was founded on 20th April 1900 at Anderton's Hotel, Fleet Street, London. 28 old boys of Boston Grammar School contributed poems, short stories, anecdotes and memories of teachers, fellow-pupils, air cadets, sports and debates. The history of Boston Grammar School was detailed in the accounts of progress made during the times of each headmaster. The book was edited by Paul Mould.
