AGNES IRWIN by Agnes Repplier


Email this review


This book is a tribute to the memory of a pioneer in the field of education, the former head of the famous Agnes Irwin School in Philadelphia, the former dean of Radcliffe College, a woman whose influence in the field of education was far-reaching. An adroit and sympathetic piece of characterization, a reflection of the spirit of the times, but not a book that should be compared to her profounder studies, -- Pere Marquette, Mere Marie of the Ursulines, Junipero Serra. Appeal primarily to those connected with the school or the college under Miss Irwin's regime, and to her many friends in Boston, New York and Philadelphia.
