Without any question Americans say, the noblest figure in the history of education in our country is that of Horace Mann. He owes this preeminence, not only to the brilliancy of his talents and the authority of his genius, but to the circumstances, the surroundings, in which his talents and genius were called upon to play their part. He may be said to have been the right man in the right place, and we must add, also, at the right time. The admiration so justly awarded to Mann by his countrymen has not been denied him abroad. Felix Pecaut, to speak of no one else, has said of him: I wish that Mann sbiography might be placed in the hands, not only of all professors, but of all their pupils.
