The Story of a Southern School: The Episcopal High School of Virginia (Classic Reprint)
Seven years ago, at the request of friends whose wish I had every reason to respect, I began assembling the materials for this History. I could give to it only a certain part of my summer vacations. The searching of records and the necessary correspondence with widely scattered sources of information made the process of gathering the data a slow one.
Then came the tragedy of the World War with its many engrossing tasks and anxieties, and with its enlargments of the scope of the History. A great deal of time was required to bring this part of the record to its present measure of completeness, and it is the result of indefatigable labor by members of the School staff.
As a human document this history should contain much of living interest. Among schools of like character the Episcopal High School has achieved a singularly honorable name for its atmosphere, standards and results. A leading Northern educator, whose life has been given to the religious education of boys, said lately after a wide tour of inspection: 'I know of no better work than that which is being done at the Episcopal High School of Virginia.'
