George Hinckley Lyman


George Hinckley Lyman attended St. Paul’s School from 1864 to 1869 and is a member of the Form of 1869. He is shown in this photograph dressed in costume, and the inscription on the back of the photograph references a theatrical performance that took place at Harvard on April 18th,  1873 – “Follies of a Night” – when Lyman was a student there[Harvard Crimson, April 18, 1873].

His obituary appeared in the Spring 1945 issue of the Alumni Horae (pg. 77), and is excerpted below:

George Hinckley Lyman, the oldest living alumnus of the School, died in Boston, Mass., on May 17, 1945. He was born in Boston, December 13, 1851, the son of Dr. George H. Lyman, a surgeon who served in the Civil War, and of Maria Cornelia Austin. He entered St. Paul’s in 1864, eight years after the founding of the School, and was graduated in 1869. From St. Paul’s he went to Harvard and was graduated with the LL.D. degree in 1877. Mr. Lyman then entered the law office of Ropes, Gray and Loring in Boston but, having trouble with his eyes, left and devoted himself to politics.
