George Carlisle earned a B.A. in history and an MFA in the writer’s workshop at Iowa. His professional career was at St. Paul’s School, in Concord, New Hampshire, where he taught for forty-five years. While there, he was Head of the English Department, and with a colleague, designed a Humanities course, now required of all third year students. The course combines the study of history with the literature of the period, along with art, music, and architecture. He was adviser to the school literary-arts magazine and was co-founder of a similar magazine at Eton College, England, while there on a teacher exchange. He has been a long-time member of Historic New England, and helped initiate the restoration of the original 1856 chapel at St. Paul’s School. He is currently working to publish his great-grandfather’s Civil War letters and family papers, as well as a folk history about a fishing village on the Delaware Bay. He continues to assist with Development at St. Paul’s and serves on the board of All Saints by the Sea, the summer chapel in Southport, Maine.
