In 1920, St John’s College was still in its infancy. The school had been established in 1898 as a parish school of St Mary’s Anglican Church in downtown Johannesburg. Soon afterwards, the social upheaval caused by the Anglo-Boer South African War – as well as the deportation of the school’s headmaster by the Boer authorities – had necessitated the closure of the school for some eighteen months.
