One of the few Episcopal priests who still serves as the headmaster of a secondary school in the United States, and a highly regarded essayist and preacher, Fr. Dunnan has an A.B. and A.M. in History from Harvard University and an M.A. and D.Phil. in Theology from Oxford University in England. He grew up in Washington, D. C., where he attended St. Albans School, and has been Headmaster of Saint James School since his appointment in July of 1992. Before coming to Saint James, he was the Chaplain of Lincoln College, Oxford. A coeducational boarding school near Hagerstown in western Maryland, Saint James School was founded in 1842 by the leaders of “the Church School Movement” in the Episcopal Church, and it is the oldest school still standing in that tradition. Father Dunnan is the tenth headmaster. Father Dunnan’s essays and sermons are available in From the Pulpit of Saint James School: The Collected Thoughts of a Priest Headmaster, vol. 1 (Watson Publishing Int., 2002) and From the Pulpit of Saint James School: Further Thoughts of a Priest Headmaster, vol. 2 (Watson Publishing International, 2009).
