Full of enthusiasm, young English schoolmasterMr. Chipping came to teach at Brookfield in 1870.It was a time when dignity and a generosity ofspirit still existed, and the dedicated newschoolmaster expressed these beliefs to his rowdy students.Nicknamed Mr. Chips, this gentle and caring manhelped shape the lives of generation aftergeneration of boys. He became a legend at Brookfield, asenduring as the institution itself. And sad butgrateful faces told the story when the time came forthe students at Brookfield to bid their finalgoodbye to Mr. Chips. There is notanother book, with the possible exception ofDickenssA Christmas Carol, that hasquite the same hold on readers affections.

Over the years it has won an enduringplace in world literature and made untold millionsof people smile--with a catch in the throat.
