dedication HERBERT W. SMITH For the past eighteen years, Herbert Smith has been the moving force behind the Fran- cis Parker School. His leaving marks the end of an era at Porker. Herbert Smith graduated from Harvard in 1912. He then taught English at Harvard and at M.I.T. He came to Parker in 1938 from the Fieldston School in Nev r York, where he v as Head of the English Depart- ment, and Principal for thirteen years. Of his activities while at Parker, Mr. Smith feels that he has been " ... about equally concerned with running as good a school as possible with some experimentation, and with strengthening and extending on a national scale the public service of independently controlled and financed education below the college level. " His success in the latter endeavor is indicated by the important posts he has held in educational organizations. He is a Founder, and has been Director of the National Registration Office for Independent Schools, the Na- tional Council of Independent Schools, and the Independent Schools ' Association oi Greater Chicago. He has been a re- presentative to the College Entrance Examination Board, and a member and officer of the Headmasters ' Association, the Country Day School Headmasters ' Association, the Private Schools ' Association of the Central States, and the Harvard Club of Chicago. He is a trustee of Chicago Commons and of the Dana Hall Schools, and a member of the Overseers ' Com- mittee for the Graduate School of Education at Harvard. His success at " running as good a school as possible " is indicated by the achievements of Parker graduates, in college and in life. Parker students know and admire Mr. Smith as a teacher, advisor, and disciplinarian. He approaches each pro- blem of school life with integrity, understanding, and wisdom. It is the desire of the Record Staff to honor Herbert Smith, to whom we are all indebted, by dedicating to him the 1956 Parker Record. PAGE FOUR
