Excerpt from William Henry Venable: An Appreciation Read Before the Cincinnati Schoolmasters Club, October 9, 1920; With Selections From the Author's Works In 1843 the family moved to a farm near Ridgeville, a hamlet located about seven miles north of Lebanon, Ohio, within a short distance of the present Ven able Station. Here, amid conditions only one remove from those of pioneer life, the subject of this sketch passed the formative years of his boyhood. Stimulated by a home environment of books and culture, the ambitious youth early outgrew the limits of learning in the Ridgeville country school, and, eager in the pursuit of higher education, he sought the advantages of collegiate training in the south-western State Normal School, at Lebanon, Ohio, where he rapidly acquired an academic knowledge of science, language, literature, and history, soon winning distinction by his versatile scholarship.
