History & Classics teacher


An Irishman and one of the earliest members of Staff, he taught Latin and History throughout the School and was appointed Assistant Master in 1912, becoming in the words of the Headmaster, “as indispensable as it is possible for any man to be”.  Strict when necessary, his teaching was meticulous and thorough and he introduced many boys to the great works of Literature. He would give voluntary evening tuition in his home on Saturday evenings in the weeks leading up to external examinations.

He helped on the games field and is still remembered refereeing senior football in overcoat and cap “without obvious hindrance to his mobility”!
