The College of Teachers

In Skrabec's interesting book 'William McGuffey: Mentor to American Industry' we read:

'Western Pennsylvania today remains the best linguist legacy of the Scots-Irish with strong accent of the population  and the unique vocabulary, such as hollows, burghs, and runs. The accent of Western Pennsylvania combines the burr of the Scots with the brogue of the Irish and adds the gutturals of Germany.'
How does Benjamin Parham Aydelott fit into the picture Skrabec draws of the College of teachers?
