If there is going to be any authority on the web, it's important to know the author. I am Alexander Coxe Pearson, native born Philadelphian, father of two, husband of one, son of Margaret and Steven, brother of Steven, Arthur, Joshua and Philip, employee of The Episcopal Academy since 1990. I am a technology person now, building and maintaining the school's data and network systems. I graduated from Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia, PA in 1978 and from Harvard in 1982, taught at The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut for four years, and got a Masters degree in Classics from Bryn Mawr College in 1989. This site is the product of a one semester sabbatical from The Episcopal Academy, begun in January of 2010.
How I went from teaching Latin and Greek to keeping a network running is a bit of a mystery, but it has been the path of many classicists. And it has been satisfactory. Here I am on top of Sargent Mountain, Mount Desert Island, Maine.
