The whole movement in Baltimore, Maryland, owes it beginning to Mrs. Francis K. Carey, wife of a prominent attorney of that city. Mrs. Carey, prompted by the wish for a proper school for her own child without separating him from the influences of home, worked out the idea of an all-day country school for city boys, perhaps combined with a boarding school, which would furnish the routine of an entire day in the country with study and sports alike under the teachers' direction. The idea of the country school for city children, supported by private tuition and private means, as worked out practically at Baltimore has extended in some degree to all parts of the country and will probably become quite common. The story of this movement as told herein should be known to all who are working for the betterment of the material conditions of schools for city children. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
