Former Trustee

Biography

Dr. Peter Pratt served on the Goddard Board of Trustees not once, but three times -- he served from 1972-1977, from 1984-1989, and from 1993-1994. Dr. Pratt is linked to the College through several generations and family ties -- he is the son of Eliot Deming Pratt, one of Goddard’s most generous benefactors; he is the father of Chris Pratt, a former faculty member and current Trustee; and he is also the brother of Vera Pratt, a former Trustee.  Peter is a graduate of Harvard College and Hahnemann Medical School.

Peter Pratt was one of the first physicians to rediscover the field of family practice in the late 1970s, when he began what is now described as a “primary care practice.”  Following his retirement Peter has stayed active in the fields of land conservation and agriculture. Peter has been a long supporter of Goddard College and has said, in his own words, that a “Goddard education teaches students how to learn, acquire knowledge, and to adapt in the world.”

Goddard Award for Excellence

In recognition of Peter's lifetime of dedication and service to Goddard College he received the Goddard College Award for Excellence on October 19, 2013, as part of Goddard College's 150th Anniversary and Homecoming Weekend. He was joined on stage by his cousin, Ann Stokes, who also received the Award during the ceremony.
