  • Notes 
    • While Farrington was also the president of the Chevy Chase Savings Bank, his reputation in education was most noteworthy. Graduating from Harvard in 1894, Farrington received an MA in 1902 and a PhD in 1904 from Columbia University. He worked as a professor and researcher in the field of education for more than a decade, at Columbia University, Speyer School, University of Texas, and Yale University. According to The Washington Post, he was also “the author of numerous works, including books and treatises on French and German educational systems, education of aliens, a Bureau of Education pamphlet, and papers on secondary education.”
