Remembering Tony Jarvis

Tony Jarvis may have been the most distinctive private school headmaster of the past half century,
if not in the history of American schooling. He was for thirty years headmaster of Boston’s Roxbury Latin
School, the oldest school in continuous operation in the United States, founded in 1645 by the Puritan divine John Eliot,
Apostle to the Indians. Roxbury Latin School today is a school of 300 boys in grades seven through twelve, and it is
annually ranked among the best, and sometimes the best, scholastically performing school in the United States. But
its scholastic performance, though impressive, is probably the least interesting thing about the school, which states its
mission to be a place “where e very boy is known and loved.”
