Arthur Stanwood Pier, in his book, St. Paul’s School 1855-1934, described him this way:

The Rev. James P. Conover , a graduate of the school, was of medium height, compact yet lithe and wiry, an athlete of great strength, quickness, and versatility.  In his early years as a master he could outjump and outrun any boy in the school.
