ANDREW VAN VRANKEN RAYMOND
American educator
(1854 - 1918)

Holland's place in history is not fixed by its institutional greatness, but rather by the diffusiveness of the ideas, the spirit, which constitutes its real life. Its part in the making of America is not seen in the separate institutions, civil, educational, religious, which it transplanted, but in the spirit of its scattered people losing everything like organic union, but thereby carrying into every community and every school and every church, the influence of a high ideal of character, a strong sense of human brotherhood, a spirit of conciliation and kindness which is to make it the destiny of Holland to live a still larger life in the America which is to be the strong and helpful neighbor to all the world, hastening the time when all the sons of men shall be the sons of God, and He who "went about doing good" shall be in truth the king of a regenerated humanity, and the whole earth one great neighborhood, where the need of each will be the care of all.
      - [Forefathers Day]
