In admz3'atz'orz of thez? abzlity and hzgh ideals MRS. GEORGE W. LLoYD, Headmistress In 1928 the School stood on the outskirts of Washington, just off Ward Circle. Woods separated it from a busy, expanding city. It was in that year that Mrs. Lloyd came to Mount Vernon Seminary to teach mathematics. On the first day of the following school year a young man stood nervously smoking on campus. He was the first man to teach in this all girls' school. Suddenly an authoritative voice broke into his thoughts. A much older faculty member, wearing a boned, lace collar, tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Young man, you are an experimentf, What a successful experiment! Thirty-two years later we know him as Dr. Lloyd, our beloved President. Soon the Lloyds became an integral part ofschool life and in 1937 Mr. Lloyd was the natural choice for President ofthe school. A year later Mrs. Lloyd became the Headmistress. On November 20, 1942, in the midst of the con- fusion caused by the Second World War, the Navy Department notified the School that they would have to take over the school property. To keep the School open seemed impossible, but Mr. and Mrs. Lloydls quiet determination to do so was contagious. Only one girl shipped her trunk home at Christmas. The Navy was to take possession in three weeks. Where could room for a boarding school be found in the hub of war activity? Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd did the impossible. Only six weeks after the Navy notice arrived the school moved into eleven new houses in Spring Valley. Classes were held on the second Hoor of Garfinckells Spring Valley store. Only cardboard walls could be procured to separate classrooms, a cow bell sounded to close each class, lunch was ten minutes away in the nearest house. But the girls enjoyed it. 6

In appreezntion of then' contribution to Mount Vernon DOCTOR GEORGE W. LLOYD, President During Mr. LlOyd,s absence in 1943, Mrs. Lloyd carried alone the burdens of a scattered school and a warringworld, brought so close to the heart by the arrival of two little nephews from England for the duration of the war. Mainly because ofthe work ofthe President and Headmistress did Mount Vernon survive the war. In 1946 the school on Foxhall Road was opened. The only buildings standing were the Academic Building, Somers House and three partially built college dormitories. There were no inside doors, no refectory, no roads, no trees. Throughout the years a refectory, a library, a gymnasium, science build- ing, dormitories, inflrmary, presidenfs house, and new gate house have been built. Mrs. Lloyd has personally supervised the landscaping, making the campus one ofthe most beautiful anywhere. 7 Under the leadership of Dr. and Mrs. Lloyd, Mount Vernon has maintained and improved its high standard of academic achievement. Three visits of accrediting committees have resulted in the unconditional accreditation ofthe school. Dr. and Mrs. Lloyd have lived in three locations ofthe school, including the attic of a Spring Valley house. They have watched the graduations of over thirty classes of Mount Vernon girls, for each one of whom they have always had time to understand her problems and to share her happiness. In admi- ration of their ability, high ideals, and untiring labor, in appreciation for keeping Mount Vernon alive for us, and in gratitude for their sympathetic interest in students, Cupola of 1961 is lovingly dedicated to Dr. and Mrs. George W. Lloyd.
