The great founding principal of Pacific High School. I am vastly in his debt for promoting my academic career and pushing me to do what I should have been smart enough to do on my own hook.
I remember the day of the Big Snow, which hit while we were in class. Over the loudspeakers, we heard Dr Bailey’s voice: “Now hear this! Now hear this! This is your Captain speaking! School will be dismissed at noon, and your Captain will meet you on the front lawn.” When we emerged, the principal had built a snow-fort, from which he returned the surrounding student body’s enthusiastic snowball fire.
I honor his memory.
|Tell me, how many high-school administrators of your acquaintance have walked into a room and received a spontaneous standing ovation from a random collection of students? Didn’t happen every time, but I witnessed it more than once.|

Mr Grenfell was head coach in Pacific’s football program. And, I think, department head. I was a total Physical Education incompetent, with no interest in improving the situation.
Maybe Mr Grenfell just liked me, but I suspect that he was under orders from higher up to make sure my incompetence didn’t mess up my scholarship record. He gave me As for taking care of the gym-class books, instead of dressing for all those distressing games and sports.
Elsewhere, I feel I earned my grades and wouldn’t say “He gave me As.” In this case, however…1956 report card 1958 report card

|“Louie” was my English teacher, during my freshman and sophomore years at Pacific. And I think she was also my faculty counselor, perhaps all three years. We were such good friends through my whole high-school experience that the organization chart hardly obtruded. Given my status as a child of two English (entre autres) teachers, her friends and colleagues, we rejoiced together in our shared native language.|
| Mr. Louis Lopez was faculty advisor to
Club and to our Senior Class of ‘58. He taught social science and, as he noted below, driver education (a Calfornia graduation requirement).

I never really got to know Miss Preston. It’s a token of the cruelty of children, even smart children, that my fellow students sometimes referred to her as “Blanche, the Happy
Hippo,” focusing rather on her dumpy, middle-aged appearance than on anything of enduring significance.

|My Pappy told a story that may do her a bit more justice. Seems she and Pappy were seated together at some banquet table, engaged in the distinctive chat of fellow English teachers, and he moved courteously to refill her water glass. Distracted, however, he poured the water into a glass that already contained an inch of milk. Detecting his error, he was of course embarrassed, but she smoothed the situation with a smile: “That’s all right, Duane: we”ll just pretend it’s tea!” I was sorry to learn, some years later, that Miss Preston and her mother had perished in a fire that destroyed the home they shared.|
|My very scholarly senior English teacher at Pacific. The first model of Eastern-seaboard pronunciation I recall encountering, out there on the edge of the Mojave.|
My friend, mentor, and very great benefactor at Harvard. A distinguished astronomer, plucked from the faculty of the Observatory on Garden Street by President Conant to found Science Education within the Graduate School of Education.
One of the guiding lights of Harvard Project Physics.
On Commencement Day
Kindly made sure we knew the whereabouts of Sears, Roebuck in Cambridge.
The Science Education shop he pioneered had its offices and library in Longfellow Hall.
My most convenient parent-surrogate.
More seniority than the Dean.
“I don’t expect to understand all of what you’re doing. But as long as you keep me convinced that you know what you’re doing, I’ll make sure those fellows don’t get in your way.”
See why I thank the Lord for Fletcher Watson? Fellow students with similarly-divergent ideas had much less satisfactory experiences at Harvard, for the want of such wise and influential faculty support.
Chaired my doctoral committee
Showed imagination, flexibility, good will, and charm.
Took my little prospectus to two distinguished faculty statisticians and recruited them for my thesis committee.
Showed uncommon willingness to step beyond customary boundaries and his comfort zone.
I felt something like widowhood as I laid the final thesis in his in-box.
Official acceptance letter as committee chairman.
Lit up his professorial pipe, assuring Rick: “I’m not an Anderson!”
Posed with him, my mentor and benefactor, after the formalities.
|My only LDS teacher at Pacific. And, if I recall aright, some sort of distant relative.|
