O. E. French, principal of Creston high school, was born in Jackson, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, June 23, 1846.

He has taught in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Nebraska and Iowa.
From 1878 to 1881 he served as county superintendent of his native county, and successfully supervised 300 schools, taught by 350 teachers. He is now teaching on his third year in Creston, and his efficiency and popularity are evinced by the enviable reputation accorded to Creston high school, and by an increase of salary at each annual election. Mr. French is a find disciplinarian, a thorough scholar, a respected and honored citizen.
