Arpee, Edward | Lake Forest College Archives and Special Collections

Name: Arpee, Edward


Historical Note:

Edward Arpee (1899-1979), the brother of Armenian historian and theologian Leon Arpee, was a career (over thirty-five years, beginning ca. 1929) professor at Lake Forest Academy. He was the spouse of Katherine Trowbridge Arpee (granddaughter of Chicago wholesale grocer and later LF resident Calvin Durand), and father of Harriet Sherman of Lake Bluff.  Arpee graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary and wrote various notable books, including "History of Lake Forest Academy" (Chicago: Alderbrink Press, 1944) and "From Frigates to Flat Tops" (1953).

The Arpees lived at 383 N. Washington Road, less than a block from the Academy, and about a block south of Mrs. Arpee's parents' home on College Road. According to the Apree's, the home was once a summer rental property for Onwentsia residents when it was owned by Van Weganen Alling. One of the past renters was Adlai Stevenson, who later built his farm in Libertyville.
