Huntington Richards attended St. Paul’s School from 1867 to 1871 and is a member of the Form of 1870. He was a member of the faculty from 1893 to 1911.
The Spring 1955 Alumni Horae (pg. 19) contains an article written by one of his former St. Paul’s School students that includes this remembrance:
We understood that he had been on the medical staff and also taught Latin classes. When age compelled retirement, the School was somewhat disconcerted to find that he had no family or friends left, and no place to go. Accordingly, they gave him this room and some rather modest duties. Primarily, he gave First Aid to the little boys who were always getting scratched and bruised. This seemed always to consist of swabbing us with iodine, as anything of moment was sent right on to the Infirmary.
