The Morgan Academy - ex The History of Dundee - 1878
- This book is in reality an attempt to create a Municipal History of
Dundee. It was Compiled I believe by a retiring Town Clerk.
The Extract quoted below, is perhaps a little flowery, and avoids the
legal issues nicely!
The Morgan Hospital
This building is at the junction of the Forfar and the Pitkerro
turnpike roads. The situation is admirable both for health and
appearance, and the house is a very handsome structure, with
abundance of ornamental and recreation ground, and the apartments are
sufficiently comfortable to board and lodge a hundred boys, for the
education of which number Mr Morgan, a native of dundee, devoted the
greater part of a fortune accumulated in India.
The Note goes on to say..... The discipline is excellent, and the
appearance and manners of the boys have nothing to suggest the
This 327 page book is jammed full of current facts, and historical
references about Dundee - but sadly is lacking an Index.
Fascinating none the less.
