Subject: Teacher Names from 1951 for my Memoir

Hello:
I attended Scarborough School for ninth grade 1951. I'm writing a memoir and would dearly like to recall the name of the Art Teacher during that year. I recall he was short, soft spoken, walked with a very slight stoop and had wavy grey or sandy brown hair.

Another teacher, who was inspiring to me, was a large man named J. Fulton Main (I'm not sure of the spelling) who taught biology with such a passion that I still recall things that subject most people have long forgotten. Most of all, I recall his obvious passion for teaching the subject.

If anyone has any recollections that could help me identify the art teacher and help with the proper spelling of Mr. Main's name, I be thrilled to hear from you.

I recall Mary Jo Porcello, Tina Meyers, Nancy Hiitchcock and Peggy Noonan(?). (I was the only male in my class.)

Many thanks

You have spelled Fulton Main's name correctly, and the Tina Myers you graduated with became the actress Tina Louise of "Gilligan's Island" fame.

Many thanks. I remember seeing Tina in the show.

Do you happen to recall an art teacher whose name may have been Mr. Beckerman?

With regrets I don't, Gary. I was a student there from 1961-6, and a member of the faculty from 1973-7, so that was before my time, though a cousin of mine by marriage, Nathaniel Sloane, may have been in your class. He was the son of actor Everett Sloane, of Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre and a number of classic films.

There were two art teachers during my time at Scarborough (1946 through 1957). The first was Philip Held, very tall and sandy-haired. The second was Donald Sutphin, who became quite an artist and has a web page (or had one, last time I looked) indicating that he lives (lived) in Italy. I have a painting of his that my mother bought from him at one of the Scarborough Fairs (fundraising events held in the 1950s), a very sad, Kathe Kollwitz style mother and child titled "Grief." I think a lot of his painting was like that, although he was not.

All I know.

Thanks, Merry:

Naturally, all and any names that are mentioned immediately teas my memory into thinking "Oh, yes! That sounds like it."

I guess it's old age just jumping at any familiar syllable.

Thanks again.

Sorry. It should have been "teases my memory..."

Gary -

I came in 3rd Grade, in 1953. Miss Daniels was the class teacher and our classroom was on the second floor on the west wing of the Studio. Behind our room, above Major Price's shop, was the Art Room. The teacher was James (Sully) Sullivan. He had long dark hair, I think a mustache or beard, and he smoked a pipe. He left in 1955 to accompany Thom Schuller to the International College in Beirut Lebanon and spent the rest of his teaching career there.

They actually left at the end of the 1959 or 1960 school year. I know Thom Schuller was installed as President at the IC in 1961.
