    Headmaster Reflection: 2015 IBSC Conference

    Jul 21, 2015
    By Dr. John Nagl, Ninth Headmaster

    I arrived in Cape Town, South Africa, on July 4, Independence Day, for the International Boys' School Coalition annual conference. I did not expect to see such illustrations of the value of freedom and the strength of character of a nation struggling to recover from apartheid, but I found the experience profoundly moving.

  • "Young Love" and the Norman Mailer Literary Award

    Jul 10, 2015
    By Tom Stambaugh, Upper School English

    When Norman Mailer visited the School to offer the Hallowell Literary Lecture in 2000, he encouraged then-Headmaster Joe Cox to offer an award "to the best piece of fiction written during the school year." The literary essay remains a staple of the curriculum, but the English Department is equally interested in fostering personal and creative writing. We find that boys' interest in writing lean, memorable sentences is much higher when they have a personal stake in the matter. The English Department selected "Young Love" by Ethan DeLehman '16 as the 2014-15 winner of the Norman Mailer Literary Award.
