An affectionate, careful house history of the eminent prep school by a former English teacher and Director of Studies who spent his working life (1918-1957) there. While there are few inklings here of the educational innovations and reforms of the last forty years that were to lead it to its present excellence, the social and intellectual framework that allowed them to occur is well described.
