LIFE.

I WAS born at Christiansburg, Va., Dec. 26, 1874, being the
fourth son of Rev. Daniel Blain, D.D., and Maiy Louisa Blain (nee
Mercer). For three years I attended the Montgomery Male
Academy. From my thirteenth to my sixteenth year I was under
my father's instruction, in his schools at Williamsburg, Va.,
Amherst, Va., and Covesville, Va. In September, 1891, I entered
Washington and Lee University. In June, 1894, I received the
degree of A.B. from that institution, followed by that of M.A. in
1895. While a student at this University I was the recipient of
scholarships in Greek and English, and the Robinson Prize Medal
in Ancient and Modern Languages.

My first year as a teacher (1895-96) was spent in Covesville,
Va., as Assistant Principal of the Cove Academy. I then accepted
the position of Instructor in English and Romance Languages at
the University of Va., assisting my old instructor, Prof. J. A.
Harrison. During my two years there (1896-98) I pursued post-
graduate studies in English, German, and French, completing all
the requirements for the degree of Ph.D. except the Dissertation.
The session 1897-98 found me Professor of English and Modern
Languages in the Speers-Langford Military Institute, Searcy, Ark.,
to which place I returned the following session as Assistant Prin-
cipal. In the mean time I had succeeded in completing my Ph.D.
dissertation, and it had just received the approval of the Univer-
sity authorities when, in February, 1899, it was destroyed by fire.
Deeming it best to be near the University in order that I might
have access to the proper reference books in reproducing the dis-
sertation, and for other reasons as well, I accepted a position at the
Fishburne Military School. On June 26 I was united in marriage
to Miss Mary Moore Winston, only daughter of Mrs. J. B. Winston,
Principal of Valley Seminary, of this place. I am now serving as
co-Principal of that institution.
