    Excerpt from A Memoir of Hugo Daniel Harper, D.D., Late Principal of Jesus College, Oxford and for Many Years Head-Master of Sherborne School, Dorset

    A biography should doubtless be, as far as possible, an autobiography. The subject of it should properly be left to tell his own story, directly or indirectly, in his own words. This, however, is sometimes difficult, or even impossible. Some men whose lives deserve to be recorded, especially if they are of a very prac tical habit of mind, leave behind them only scanty materials for the construction of such a record. This was the case with Dr. Harper. His story cannot be te-told in his words because he never told it. Volu minous as his correspondence was, his letters were almost invariably on business subjects, or such as to be of only temporary interest. I have tried to pre serve what seemed to be of permanent value, and also to give some account of the progressive realisa tion of enlightened ideas of education as illustrated by the history of Sherborne School between the years 1850 and 1877. Sherborne was the real work. Of Dr. Harper's life, and it is as a great head-master that he was most widely known and will be longest remem.
