To Hartley's question as to the influence high school and college had on his writing Nash replied "my answer to your letter is bound to be prejudiced as my college education amounted to nothing...I was fortunate enough in Prep School to have three or four teachers who were masters of their craft, to whom I owe a great deal." He concludes "This answers your questions as far as I am concerned, but does not necessarily apply to anybody else."
Nash attended Harvard for only two years following his education at St. George's School. Much of his earlier schooling was at home under the instruction of his mother, a scholar, due to his eye trouble. (Inventory #: 24288)
