One thought on “Faculty

  1. I’ve just unearthed a 2014 email from Randy Everts, Class of 1964. Randy offers some recollections on specific teachers (Lindsey, Payton, Buck, Starret, Middleton, Sullivan), inserted as comments, as well as these memories, without specific names:
    I cannot recall the name of a social studies teacher who was a Norman Thomas Socialist and who prompted me to send a letter to Stan Laurel (both his and my idol) whose apartment in Malibu my brother and I had found and knocked on the door and gotten his autograph. In his class, we had to memorize the speech that Mark Anthony gave at the death of Caesar and then he went from row to row having us recite it until we ran out of words. I still can recite most of “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones…”
    Another teacher weighed our homework on a scale on his desk. My friend Nick, who was going into Engineering at UCLA when he graduated, brought some thin sheets of lead from home which we interleaved with our homework notebooks and of course we both got “A’s” If you think this behaviour smacked of some mental problem, Nick and I later saw this poor teacher at the Graduate Research Library at UCLA, talking to himself and after we said hello to him it became clear he was not a stable person and he told us he had been fired from UniHi.
