from the July 1952 EHS magazine, Editorial

The function of this Magazine, as defined in its first issue in 1916, by the first Headmistress, Miss Fletcher, to whose work the School owes so much, and whom many Old Girls hold in loving memory, is "to hold up a mirror to the life of our very dear School." Since that first issue the Magazine has continued, without interrnission, in varying circumstances, to perform this function. For many years it has been, in the hands of its successive editors, a mirror held so as to catch and throw back as full, as true, and as vivid a reflection as possible of the School's life.
