432 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. EDUCATION. The fascinating, comprehensive history of a preeminent New York independent educational institution. This scrupulously researched, well-written and-illustrated history of Trinity School, published to coincide with the School's 300th anniversary, closely parallels the history of New York City. From its beginnings as a charity school supported by the Anglican Church (after the American Revolution by the Episcopal Church) through lean years and the 19th century when the school received its own endowment and established its independence, Trinity presents a dramatic story that reveals much New York City history, educational history, and the changing fortunes of American youth. Located since the 1890s on the Upper West Side, Trinity has established itself as one of the city's&emdash; indeed, the country's--top independent schools. The author highlights different approaches to leadership, changes in the school's constituencies, what it teaches, and the place of elite education in a democratic society. Alumni, students, prospective students, their families, educators, and historians, especially those with an interest in the history of New York City and of elementary and secondary education, will not want to miss this authoritative new volume. Timothy C. Jacobson is a partner of The Winthrop Group, Inc. and a widely published historian; his books included the highly regarded Making Medical Doctors: Science and Medicine at Vanderbilt Since Flexner.
