Abstract
In a volume of verse published in 1864, Robert Lowell wrote a short dedication to the first head of Round Hill School, Jospeh Green Cogswell. The Round School rested in Northampton, Massachusetts, and while financial failure closed it a decade after it opened, it had a lasting impact on pupils such as Lowell, who attended the school as a nine year old. Harriet Webster Marr takes a look inside the short-lived learning institution.
