The University Military School, Its First Principal and Founder Julius Tutwiler Wright
The private academies of Alabama cannot justly be ignored in the history of education in this state. Their graduates have gone out to exert influence in various professions and vocations. Their provisions for high school education have in many instances preceded a similar provision by the state. Since many of these institutions no longer exist it seems worth while that their history be preserved for future reference. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to preserve the available data relative to the University Military School for the period 1893 to 1931. The school continues to operate under conditions different from those during the years indicated.
