Lawyer Bernard Smalley, who learned about power in his dad’s barbershop, to head politically connected charity that runs Girard College

Though it controls 120 individual trusts, more than half of its assets are destined for Girard College, the 42-acre walled free boarding school a few blocks north of Center City in north Philadelphia. School enrollment, which is nearing 1,000 at its current peak, was cut to around 300 a decade ago and has remained at that level. Students live on campus during school hours but go home on weekends.
