This is the 1988 yearbook from Norfolk Academy, which he graduated from:

There's a quote from Plato next to his name inside, saying, "If you want the virtue of a woman, it is not difficult to describe; she must manage the home well, preserve its possessions, and be submissive to her husband."

The quote is from Meno, a Socratic dialogue written by Plato.

The quote appears in certain translations of Meno, a book in which the two principal characters, Socrates and Meno, discuss and muse about the notion of virtue.

Norfolk Academy recently congratulated Short on his appointment in the White House.
