As the duties of superintendent of the Albion Public Schools increased, it was necessary to add the separate position of principal at the high school. Luther H. Baker assumed these duties in the fall of 1899. A native of Lansing, he graduated from the Michigan Agricultural College in 1893, and had taught at Galesburg, Galien, and Kalamazoo before coming to Albion. Baker also assumed the duties of teaching mathematics from the superintendent.
