Park students read selections from a statement on the founding of The Park School written by Hans Froelicher in the summer of 1925 when the school was 13 years old. He was President of the Board of Trustees of The Park School from the founding in 1912 until his election to the Acting Presidency of Goucher College in 1929. The statement was not written for publication. It was written for Mr. Stanwood Cobb (and at his request) who was at that time collecting original material on the beginnings of the Progressive Education Association and of the movement in education for which this association assumed the leadership.
The piece is popularly referred to as "The School I Had in Mind…"
