Windom free pdf Excerpt from Windom: The Man and the School Because I want the students and friends of Windom Institute to know how great and how good a man their school seeks to honor I set down here in briefest form an account of William Windom's illustrious career. His English ancestors, both paternal and maternal, were Quakers, who, coming first to Virginia, settled in Ohio two generations before Windom's birth. The language and customs of the Quakers and their deeply religious spirit marked the pioneer home where William Windom was born on the "10th day of the 5th month," in 1827. When the lad was ten years old the family removed to Knox county, in about the center of Ohio, which was then remote from markets and a frontier community indeed. Communication with the outer world came only at rare intervals, the settlement being self-sufficient in the manufacture of clothing and the provision of most of its wants. There was poverty, if the lack of money makes poverty- there was competency, if comfortable shelter, warm clothing, plentiful larders and simple wants make a competency. The farmer's boy learned at any rate to be undismayed at hard work, and all the discouragements and difficulties of a frontierman's life.
