The results of this study came as no surprise to me. I’ve kept up with many of my students well into adulthood and know first-hand what they’re achieving in life. They’ve lived all over the world, studying and teaching and serving in the armed forces. They are Fulbright Scholars and business entrepreneurs and PhDs. They are farriers and nurses and musicians. They can build you a house and see that it’s properly insured. They are loving mothers and fathers. Most of all, they are good and decent people. On the whole, they seem to be a pretty happy bunch of folks living lives of their own choosing. I’m not saying it’s all because they went to Hogarth, but there’s no denying the early Hogarth experience was a hugely positive force in their young lives.
