    The Headmaster: Frank L. Boyden, of Deerfield by McPhee, John

    New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1979. Second printing. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; 149 p. Black & white photographs by Robert Crow. Starting in 1902 at a country school that had an enrollment of fourteen, Frank Boyden built an academy that has long since taken its place on a level with Andover and Exeter. Boyden, who died in 1972, was the school’s headmaster for sixty-six years. John McPhee portrays a remarkable man “at the near end of a skein of magnanimous despots who...created enduring schools through their own individual energies, maintained them under their own absolute rule, and left them forever imprinted with their own personalities.” More than simply a portrait of the Headmaster of Deerfield Academy, it is a revealing look at the nature of private school education in America. Reviews “One always has the sense with McPhee of a man at a pitch of pleasure in his work, a natural at it, finding out on behalf of the rest of us how some portion of the world works.” -- Edward Hoagland, The New York Times. “A fine portrait of an individualist's individualist.” -- J. G. Herzberg, The New York Times. “McPhee has produced an engaging portrait of an exceedingly engaging man.” -- Alvin Beam, Cleveland Plain Dealer. “The Headmaster is a record of a lifetime's striving to create perfection--a striving conducted with zest, vision, humor and an unbelievable capacity for work.” -- John McKey, The Boston Globe. Book is near fine with minimal edge wear and some light foxing to the upper page block. There is a name plate pasted on inside front cover. The dust jacket, not clipped, is near fine with minimal edge wear, slight bumping to the spine ends. There is a little yellowing to the jacket edges. The picture is a scan of the actual book.
