Alcid C. Burrell was born March 22, 1859, in Tuscarawas county, Ohio, where his father, Richard Burrell, was a prosperous farmer. After attending the country schools of his home he studied at the Lebanon Normal School, preparatory for teaching, later entering Mount Union College at Alliance, Ohio, from which he graduated in 1885, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, afterward receiving the degree of Master of Arts from the same institution. He holds a life high school certificate from State Board of Ohio, and he also took courses at the Western Reserve University and the Chicago University, thus rounding out a most thorough, liberal education.

From thence, going to Indianapolis, Indiana, he was appointed teacher of Physics, in the North High School in that city, remaining there for six years. Returning to Ohio he was elected superintendent at Monroeville, and has filled this position for the past seven years to the complete satisfaction of all interested. He is on the county board of examiners of Huron county and has the supervision of the schools of Ridgefield township with his other work.
