50. Mr. Brubaker

Bob Brubaker, gawky, bespectacled, sandy-haired with a nose and ears made for teasing, taught music to cruel junior high classes. Plunked out by Mr. Brubaker on tuneless pianos, we memorised the school song: “…glowing yooooouth… seek the door of truuuuuth.”


Oh, that's Mr. B - perfectly stated. Did you ever sing that school song in public? I don't remember it.

Hail to thee Rock Glen Junior High School, where the glowing youth,
in our strengths and youthful talents
seek the doors of truth..."

Mr. Brubaker is captured in a wonderful photograph taken by a woman from NY who has done a book of photos from her visits to the Hazleton Schools. It's brilliant.
