General information
Country United States

"Professor John B. Eberly tried to hire Quincy Leckrone, but no deal was reached. The Smithville, Ohio citizens encouraged a independent school. At close of first day of classes Quincy Leckrone was issued an injunction barring him from further activities with this new school as he was under contract to teach at the Eberly School. Eberly lost the case and Mr. Leckrone resumed charge of the school.

Due to unknown circumstances the school came to a half not finishing the half year.

Disgraceful exhibits of hostility took place in the hanging in effigy of the new school supporters." [1]
