Item description for Victoria College: A History Revealed by Sahar Hamouda & Colin Clement...
This book is at once the history of a British-style public school rooted in Egyptian soil - and a reflection of the cosmopolitan spirit of Alexandria during the first half of the twentieth century. This immensely readable history is, a book about and for the Old Victorians. In a series of colorful sketches, backed by plentiful quotations from archival material, a series of engaging and distinguished characters come to life, not least Victoria's first two headmasters, C. R. Lias and his successor R. W. G. Reed - the two men whose enlightened vision and skillful leadership made the school what it was.
