Stephen Perkins Cabot, 1882 [identity speculative]
1869-1951; never married; Parents: Francis Cabot, Mary Louisa Higginson; lived on Heath Street at the corner of Boylston Street.

His father was a wealthy cotton manufacturer. Stephen graduated from Harvard. He was in the class of 1892 but because of ill health did not receive his degree until 1901, spending much of the intervening time in Europe. He had a long teaching career, most of it at St. George’s School in Newport, Rhode Island. He began teaching there in 1901 and was headmaster from 1917 until his retirement in 1926. He later became involved in social work, heading various organizations including the Judge Baker Guidance Center, the Greater Boston Community Fund, and the Family Welfare Society.

We cannot completely rule out that the first initial reads as an F which would favor the identification instead as older brothers Frederick or Follen.
