Abeih, 1846 - Dr. DE Forest's school for girls, 1847 - Simeon H. Calhoun, "The Saint of Lebanon" -Cornelius Van Alan Van Dyck.

TWO institutions were begun during this period, the Abeih Seminary for boys under Dr. Van Dyck, November 4, 1846, and Dr. De Forest's family boarding-school for girls, in Beirut. The Abeih Seminary passed under the care of Rev. Simeon Calhoun, in 1849, and continued to flourish as the highest literary institution in Syria, until the Syrian Protestant College was opened in 1865.
