McPhee, John, 1931- . [Boyden, Frank L. (Learoyd), 1879-1972]  
The Headmaster. Frank L. Boyden, of Deerfield.

Publisher: NY, Farrar, Straus & Giroux. 'Third printing, 1979'.
148 p., illus.; 20 cm. "I hope the reader will have a sense that he is looking at a picture of Frank L. Boyden, headmaster of Deerfield Academy, as he was soon after his eighty-sixth birthday, with details of his life and the history of his school coming in as elements in the portrait. Much of the story, particularly of the last and longest chapter, is written in the present tense, and I think that it should remain that way; for, more than anything else, it is the headmaster's immediacy that I have tried to arrest and to re-create." Pictorial paper covers; minor wear & soiling; good. stock#741.

Westerhoff Iii, John H.  
McGuffey and His Readers

Publisher: 1978.
Very Good Mott Media Reprint Paperback This is the story of the man behind the readers that formed the minds of a majority of AmericaÆs children in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
