Overview

Excerpt from Building a School: A Fearless Portrayal of Men and Events in the Old Bay State, 1906-1919

In this volume will be found the humble and the great, in the engrossing drama of life - sketched from life itself. Herein is unfolded the pitiful beginning and the painful progress of an institution, too humble at first to attract the watchful eye of the Great Octopus; and too mighty in the final conflict to be strangled or kept down. And unfolding, the sketch reveals, and names, men. great in public affairs of Massachusetts, as the public never sees them, at the business of legislation under the great dome on Beacon Hill.

The Great Octopus is there with its crimson tentacles reaching from Committee Room to Committee Room, from the halls of legislation to the Governor's office, playing its pawns in the great game of legislation.

And the searchlight plays not only upon the heights of Beacon Hill; but over the State itself and discloses who controls our public schools, and why; who controls our State Boards and all things educational in Massachusetts, to the furtherance of class distinctions that even now threaten the life of the Republic.
