Milwaukee Country Day School

Milwaukee Country Day School (MCD) was a country day school in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee, under the headmastership of A. Gledden Santer (A.B., Cambridge), who had been operating a smaller school called St. Bernard's School since 1911; the school was begun in 1917, "incorporated by leading citizens.". According to alumnus Henry Reuss, "Country Day, with its Church of England prayers, its 'body sports' and its Latin studies, marked the general de-Germanization of Milwaukee culture which occurred in the 1920s."

In 1964 it was merged with two other local day schools (Milwaukee University School and Milwaukee-Downer Seminary) to become the University School of Milwaukee, of which MCD's facilities became the South Campus (until they were shut down in 1985). They are now the home of the Milwaukee Jewish Day School.

The school appears ("thinly disguised") in the novel Shadowland by alumnus Peter Straub.

Famous quotes containing the words school, day and/or country:

    One non-revolutionary weekend is infinitely more bloody than a month of permanent revolution.
    Graffiti, School of Oriental Languages, London (1968)

    The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more
    John Adams (1735–1826)

    The two-party system has given this country the war of Lyndon Johnson, the Watergate of Nixon, and the incompetence of Carter. Saying we should keep the two-party system simply because it is working is like saying the Titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life-rafts.
    Eugene J. McCarthy (b. 1916)
