About the Book

This is a history of a school, but it is not merely the story of an institution. It is a montage of stories, including reports of athletic contests, memories of alumni, pranks and protests, and even a number of brief sketches of the lives of alumni after the Academy. It is, in short, an attempt to recover the life of the place.
