Summary

" The Man was Frank Milner's nickname, and the name by which he is still remembered by those who knew him personally or heard of him, both throughout New Zealand and overseas. Frank Milner, Rector of Waitaki Boys' High School for nearly forty years, was one of New Zealand's greatest headmasters and educationalists. As a headmaster he was seen as the New Zealand equivalent of Dr Arnold of Rugby, a man who was, as James Bertram puts it, 'oneof those highly charged personalities who provoke either excessive admiration or dislike', 'His most distinctive memorials are a school, a personal legend, and an unforgotten voice.'
