Profile

Father William Ignatius Rice, OSB, MA, was Headmaster of Douai School from 1915 to 1952. In his younger days he played for Warwickshire during the summer holidays and for some years enjoyed the distinction of being the only monk whose cricket performances were chronicled in Wisden. He was a friend of GK Chesterton, whose Father Brown novels were based on Father O'Connor, a mutual friend.
