The first mention of “Glimpses of a Glorious Past: An Informal History of The Lawrence School, Lovedale” was made in this blog on June 10, 2017. This was a writing/editing project I was very much involved in as The Lawrence School, Lovedale has a place deep in my heart. I studied there for nine years from 1959 to 1967.
The book covers a period of 150 years in the history of the School from the time it was founded in 1858 till it completed 150 years in 2008. It was officially released during Founder’s in May 2017 by then OLA President, Rukhmini Reddy Krishnan. Since then it resides in the website of The Old Lawrencians Association (OLA).
