A boyhood in Brooklyn – New Utrecht High School

New Utrecht High Biology Squad 1927Old photo albums are fascinating. Here is my father on the Biology Squad at New Utrecht High School in 1927.* The Squad was a hand-picked group of bright students (all boys) trusted to set out equipment before the biology lab started and to wash out the lab beakers and put away equipment afterward. You wouldn’t think that would be a very rewarding job, kind of like being allowed to clean chalk off erasers by clapping them together out of doors. But the whole experience confirmed for my father his love of science and determination to be a doctor. * Recognize anyone?
