Bernard Tyrrell, A.M.

Transcript of Article

Mr. Tyrrell's home is near Charlottesville, Va.

After the period of his primary schooling, he entered Storer College, where he completed the normal course, and afterwards he engaged in teaching in the public schools of Virginia and West Virginia. Returning to Stover at such times as he could, he pursued the academic course, preparatory to entering some northern college.

Meantime, he had made marked success as a teacher, winning both the favor of the patrons of the schools he taught, and high commendation from the different boards of education.

Like many of our young men, he has had to work his way through school.

After a hard struggle to support himself in college for four years, he earned and was granted the degree of A.B. in Hillsdale College, Michigan.

In the latter part of his course in this college he gained especial attention and favor among the people of several states of the west as a lecturer on subjects embodying discussions of the education and elevation of the oppressed in the south.

After graduating at Hillsdale, he returned to Storer College and taught the ancient and modern languages. He was subsequently employed as lecturer and financial agents for that institution, in which service he in a short period raised about two thousand dollars in the N.E. states.

Much against the wishes of the President and Trustees, he resigned his position and entered Yale Divinity School from which he will receive the degree of B.D. in May next.

Summary of Article
The article provides a biographical sketch of Bernard Tyrrell (of Charlottesville), who taught the ancient and modern languages at Storer College. Recently, however, Tyrrell resigned from his position as an educator to pursue a degree in the Yale Divinity School.
