James Holmes

Upper School History

A Denver, Colorado native, James has delighted in the study of history since he was very young. In his education, he has developed a love for cultural and intellectual history with a particular love for a large variety of cultures and for seeing them interact with each other. When not thinking about, reading about, or discussing history, James enjoys music; he sings and plays the piano, clarinet, saxophone, and drums.

"History is above all things the human story, full of great and terrible events; in studying this story, people can gain context for the world they live in and recognize how they fit into this incredible story.”
