Elbert Hubbard describes the homes of authors, poets, social reformers and other prestigious people, reflecting on how their surroundings may have influenced them. These short essays are part biography and part pontification of Hubbard's opinion of the subject and their oeuvre.
In this volume he reflects on the lives of great teachers throughout history. Included are Moses, Confucius, Pythagoras, Plato, King Alfred, Erasmus, Booker T. Washington, Thomas Arnold, Friedrich Froebel, Hypatia, Saint Benedict and Mary Baker Eddy. (Summary by Lucy Perry, adapted by Luke Sartor) This is Volume 10 in a series of 14 books.
