Written by Ron Palma
Founded in 1922, Holland Hall is the oldest independent, college preparatory school in Oklahoma. Under the leadership of former Holland Hall faculty member, Ron Palma, the Holland Hall Advancement team and Book Committee commissioned Grandin Hood to commemorate the school’s colorful tradition and rich heritage of academic excellence as two separate books – one, a text recounting the institution’s history, and the second, a visual collection of archival images, anecdotal accounts, and vivid contemporary photography. The result is an elegant, two-volume, slip-cased edition now available to the Holland Hall community for purchase for $85 per set.
