I remember a couple of my teachers:
|Classes:||Some former students:
Danny Murtagh - (1930's)
|Recollections:||"My grandmother, Eugenie J. Doyle (nee Hardouin) taught at Franklin School from 1923 to
1945. Prior to that she taught first grade at the Lincoln
School from 1898 to 1903. (1903 thru 1923 she married and had 6 children, one of
which was my father).
"I have a copy of a "Letter to the Times Editor" which she wrote. I don't have a date but it had to be after her retirement in 1945 and her death in 1959. In this letter she spoke about her teaching career and mentioned many of her pupils. This was her short list of first graders: Wally Brotherston, Franklin Riley, William Nothnagle, Ellwood Garrett, Marian Rightmyer, Fred Baldt, Raymond Dix, Fred Iredale, Eva and Sara Riley, George Boulden, Mabel Danfield, Frank Coppock, Clarence Noden, Edna Jackson, Greenwood Milbourn, Lillian Creamer, Margaret Pullen, Margaret Paul, Billy and Florence Beaumont, Dorothy and Jack Sproul, Sara and Farwell Long, and Judge Henry G. Sweney.
"She was quite a lady and I'm sure a wonderful teacher."
Her granddaughter, Helen (Doyle) Gallo, Gallohj@aol.com
