On February 9, 1906, the Trustees elected as Third Rector the Reverend Dr. Henry Ferguson, professor of history and political science at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. The Reverend Dr. Ferguson had himself been a student at St. Paul’s School from 1859 to 1864, had sent two sons to the School, and had served as a Trustee for seventeen years. He was one of the School’s most generous benefactors. The Reverend Dr. Ferguson’s administrative style facilitated a transition away from fifty years of intense paternalism toward a culture more hospitable to progressive and modern ideas.
