The Reverend Dr. Matthew Madison Warren became the Seventh Rector of St. Paul’s School in the summer of 1954 and retired in March of 1970. During those sixteen years, the School, like the country, experienced a wide range of changes. In 1954, when the Reverend Dr. Warren became Rector, the School offered a six-year course of instruction, with an emphasis on the classical and the sacred. In addition to the academic requirements, every week a student had to attend twenty-one seated meals, eight Chapel services, and athletics every afternoon. When compared to SPS in 1900, the School by 1954 had grown in size, and its curriculum had become more modern and demanding. The Reverend Dr. Warren steered the School through the tumult of the late 1960s, at the end of which St. Paul’s School was a changed place. Still, the fundamental aim of the School was the same: to educate the whole person.
