Biographical/Historical Note

Ole Wickliff Burroughs (1873-1958) was born in Bellevue, Pennsylvania. After graduation from Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania, he received his L.L.B. from the University of Pennsylvania. He became the principal of the Boys Industrial School in Pittsburgh and in 1915 moved to Savannah, Georgia, to be director of the Bethesda School for Boys. He remained at Bethesda until his retirement in 1945. His wife, Henrietta Kredel Burroughs (ca. 1880-1969), and their children Mary and Jon were integral in the life of the school during these years.
