Renowned education and statesman Aleksander Veiderma (1888-1972) began writing his memoirs in 1963. The author's recollections take us through late 19th-century rural life in Läänemaa, his university years in St. Petersburg, his career as a schoolteacher, and his role in the education and societal life of the newly established Republic of Estonia during the War of Independence. From the vivid mosaic of memories emerges a picture of a proactive individual's life's work.
