Edward Holland Nicoll attended St. Paul’s School from 1870 to 1876 and is a member of the Form of 1877.
According to Arthur Stanwood Pier’s St. Paul’s School 1855-1934 (pg. 151), in 1871 Nicoll was a member of the Ariel crew team, rowing in the bow position, and competed in the first annual crew race at St. Paul’s School. The Ariel team was made up entirely of Third Formers, and they finished only two seconds behind the winning Halcyons – Shattucks finished in third place due to one of the oarsmen having caught a crab. This first race began the tradition that is still held each Anniversary weekend at St. Paul’s School.
His brothers Delancey Nicoll, Form of 1870, and Benjamin S. T. Nicoll, Form of 1873, both attended St. Paul’s School.
