Francis King Cooke founded the school in 1901, which ran through 1919. In 1919, the school campus and some students were absorbed by the new North Shore Country Day School, which is still operating in the same location as of 2014. The yearbook features original writing, photographs of the students and faculty, illustrations, and local advertisements featuring businesses from Chicago, Evanston, and Winnetka, Illinois.

Dedicated to Mrs. Patrick William Robertson Glover
