Historical Note

The Black-Foxe Military Institute was a private, all-male military and boarding school, serving students from kindergarten through twelfth grade, in Los Angeles, California. The school was founded in 1929 by the real estate tycoon Charles E. Toberman and Majors Earle Foxe and Harry Lee Black. The school was founded on the site of the former Urban Military Academy and many celebrities sent their children to Black-Foxe. In 1968 Black-Foxe was forced to shut down after the property's mortgage holder foreclosed.
