A MODERN EDUCATOR
THOMAS GODOLPHIN ROOPER
“His whole life was a long ascent, in the course of which there was no level ground.”
“He lived to magnify the mind.”
“Left play for work, grappled with the world, bent on escaping the common life.”
“He had laid out his plan for his lifetime.”
“A great work will require a lifetime, and its payment will never be received this side the grave.”

 This In Memoriam article appeared in the Parents’ Review (the organ of the Parents’ Union) shortly after Mr Rooper’s death. The more intimate references I was allowed to quote from letters written by Miss Rooper and Miss Agnes Rooper.
