On Beacon Hill School.

"As to your questions about the school, it is very difficult to make any specific generalizations about it. I find that it was very much the product of a spirit and temper which is no longer with us in much abundance. The horror of the Great War gave some people a deep sense of purpose in that they believed that society would be reformed for the better and man would progress to a new level of creativity and happiness. To that end, the old order would have to be pulled down and a new one constructed. I think that Beacon Hill epitomizes this wave of energy, optimism and belief in the future."
