Historical/Biographical Note

Nineteenth-century evangelist, Dwight Lyman Moody, founded two institutions: The Northfield Seminary for Young Ladies (1879) and the Mount Hermon School for Boys (1881). Built for poor children without access to other means of education, the two schools remained seperate until 1971, until they were merged into Northfield Mount Hermon, a coeducational school.
