Col. Charles Fowler, who purchased the school in 1894,  believed that outdoor recreation in the Florida climate would be a great benefit to students in their scholastic work. He established winter quarters in Eau Gallie (now Melbourne, FL) in 1906.  This began the annual trip to Florida for the winter session.
