Ward, George Washington, 1867 - 1932


Unlike his predecessors, George Washington Ward was a product of Maryland education, attending a one room school in Daisy, Maryland. He received his B.A. and Masters from Western Maryland College and his Ph. D. from Johns Hopkins University. In 1905, Ward was appointed Principal of MSNS. He served for 4 years and then resigned to engage in the brokerage business. Important developments during his tenure were broadening of the teacher training program, establishment of a departmental structure for the faculty, and the hiring of a librarian to organize and expand the library.
