No Ordinary School: The Study, 1915-2015
Abstract
In 1913, Oxford-educated Margaret Gascoigne left England for Montreal in search of new opportunities. In 1915 she established a small school for six students in the study of her Drummond Street home - the modest beginning of what would become known as The Study, an elite all-girls private school. The author explores the evolution of The Study through world wars, the Great Depression, the Quiet Revolution, and many stages of feminism, from its predominantly English Montreal origins into the bilingual and multicultural institution that it is today.
