iUniverse, 2004 - 148 páginas
Located in the heart of the Lakes Region, Holderness School boasts a rich history that is closely entwined with New Hampshire's past. "This Tender Vine" explores this history in celebration of the school's one hundred and twenty five year anniversary. Learn more about the social changes and themes that resonated throughout each period of the school's history: Ties to the Episcopal Church and a tradition of service The integration of women and the advent of coeducation Pioneering academic curricula and programs Grass-roots development of the arts Competitive athletics and the historical importance of snow sports Solberg brings together the perspectives of previous school historians and a wealth of archival material, using both chronological and thematic lenses to reflect on school culture. From the venerable Livermore family whose mansion was the school's first home, to the visionary churchmen who founded the school, to the headmasters who helped guide the school through times of crisis, she introduces key figures and places them in historical context. More than a simple historical summary, "This Tender Vine" is a loving tribute to a venerable yet vibrant school community.
