Cotting School renames department for late Globe publisher


The trustees of the Cotting School in Lexington voted to rename the school’s communication therapy department the William O. Taylor Department of Communication Therapy, after the late Boston Globe publisher, the school announced Thursday. Additionally, the school announced the creation of the William O. Taylor Chair in Communication Therapy. Taylor, publisher of the Globe from 1978 to 1997, also served as board chairman of the Cotting School from 1973 to 1986. During his time as chairman, the school, which serves children with physical and learning disabilities, moved from a “cramped facility in Boston to a 14-acre, fully accessible campus in Lexington,” the school said.
