Show Summary Details


This chapter explores what being the headmaster did to and for Temple himself. The most important source for discovering what Rugby was like when Temple was headmaster is the evidence which he and his colleagues gave before the Clarendon Commission on Public Schools. The general picture of Temple that emerges is of a man easy in his manner, friendly in his dealings with the boys and masters alike, fair and just, and, above all, immensely hard working.
