EDS tends to be socially liberal, particularly with regards to acceptance of homosexuality in the priesthood, perhaps in part to Otis E Charles, the Dean of the school in the 1990s, who came out as a gay man. One could make the argument that Charles came out while at EDS because of their support of openly gay priests. Rockhopper10r 01:10, 12 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Online source that talks about the school[edit]

A history of Middlesex County from about 1880 talks a bit about its founding: http://books.google.com/books?q=brattle&pg=PA351&id=0sQTAAAAYAAJ and has an early etching on page 358. betsythedevine (talk) 17:42, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

There is also a section about the school in this book from 1896: http://books.google.com/books?id=dmkWAAAAYAAJ betsythedevine (talk) 19:42, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
