Located in the picturesque center of New Hampshire, the school followed the English tradition of education with a heavy emphasis on classical studies, fine arts, sports, and religion. Young Lamar took the lead role in the school play and received good reviews. He was on the football team and was a member of the Missionary Society, which promoted the idea of public service to the needy. It was here that he likely acquired the nickname, "Bimi," taken from a character in a Rudyard Kipling story. These early years at St. Paul's School instilled in Lamar a sense of respect for education, an appreciation of public responsibility, and a life-long love of New Hampshire's rustic nature. These ideals would stay with him the rest of his life.
