Synopsis: Edward Thring features prominently in all the educational histories of his period, and is seen as the foremost figure in independent schools in the generation after the famous Dr. Thomas Arnold of Rugby. This book draws on new material and letters discovered in an archive. And archive it was assumed had perished in a fire; it shows just how ground-breaking his reforms really were; how sound or otherwise his methods of financing Uppingham were, and why he polarized people between passionate supporters and strong opponents. This biography also includes the bitter battle over who should be his literary executor.
