04/05/2010  Class Note: Mr. Samuel Barash

After graduation from Townsend Harris HS I attended City College of New York (6 years at night while working at the Brooklyn Navy Yard helping to build ships for England to fight the Nazis).

In 1943, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, by happily accepting credit for enlisting, 16 credits, from the college of City of New York, which I had been attending at night, and which I needed to complete my graduation.

Shortly thereafter, I found myself, with my Seabee Battalion on Marcus Island, off New Giunea in the Pacific. Then, from editing the Seabee Battalion, where I was the only college graduate.  So they naturally told me to write the Battalion Newspaper, which was circulated to Battalion families in America and will recieved (no one had to write their own letters, everyone was happy; I was overwhelmed).

Not too long after, Pearl Harbor decided i wrote well enough to be a US Navy Correspondent, so along with civilian corresponding I filed batter stories until the war ended and I returned home after participating and evacuating American war prisioners who were being held in Japanese camps outside of Tokyo and in China. Returned home. Worked at the Veterans Administration in NYC and later became cheif of construction and applaince for all of New Jersey Vet Administration offices.

After retirement, I wrote 10 books published by Crown and Prentice Hall Publishers, mainly on Real Estate, but some in collaboration with a friend, a magician.  All these literary activity ceased finally when I took up tennis about 20 years ago, which I love fircely. Sadly, I hardly ever win now. 

It seems everyone I play is so much younger now, is that fair?

Thank you for keeping me on your mailing list. However, if you have a newsletter, I haven't been recieving it. In years past the Association has been quite responsible in letting me know what's been happening at the school.  I now have no knowledge.

I have been retired as an engineer for 22 years, visit on of my sons, who is a Rabb, in Jerusalem, each year.  While visiting I create projects out of wood at my son's request. I design the item, have it cut to size at a wood worker in MeaShearim (Jerusalem), and assemble the item in the room I use while visiting my son and his wife and my six grandchildren. Since they have no closets in their apartment, I make large storage closets, toy closet (6 ft x 8 ft), bookcases, tables, children's table, easel, music table for a portable piano, computer table with shelving, etc. Keeps me busy while I am there.  At house, I belong to the Senior Center where I go to exercise classes 3 days a week.  I have been to the Salt Lake City Genealogy archoves for my family history research. At present I am recording all my family photos and slides onto a DVD for my family's easy use.

Would appreciate being kept up to date on the happenings of the High School I attended over 65 years ago. It closed in 1942 when I had a year to go to graduate. All the best to the school!

I attended the old THHS and have been affiliated with 3 institutions of higher education:  CCNY (now, I guess, CUNY) for my undergraduate degree; U. of Chicago, for my PhD and as a staff member, because I spent 11 years at the Argonne National Lab, which was operated by U. of Chicago; and the U. of Illinois, Urbana, where I served on the faculty for 35 years, and still putter around my lab and occasionally do a tutorial with a grad student.  When I was in school in NY I was sometimes told that New Yorkers were the most provincial of Americans! I now believe that.  When the U. of Chicago or the U. of Illinois hold a reunion, they give out-of-towners alumni months of  notice, and lists of near-by-hotels, sometimes with special discounts.  YOU, like CUNY give a week or 2 of notice -- and that's that!  Oh, but you expect out-of-town alumni to show their loyalty financially! Please note:  Loyalty is a 2-way street!

Took me 10 years to get my Bachelor's in Fashion Merchandising at F.I.T., but i did it and worked in the industry as a trim coordinator, then fabric purchasing manager, and finally, director of raw materials. After my first child was born, I decided to completely change careers to take better care of him. At 14 months of age, he was evaluated and we were told, "Your child presents with autistic characteristics". He received early intervention services immediately and I decided to go back to school to get my master's in early childhood special education. today, my son is a typically developing child with proficiency in reading, writing, and math. He passed the gifted/talented citywide test with very high scores, but i chose to keep him in his neighborhood school with is friends and challenge him at home. My daughter, only one year behind him, obviously benefitted from all the help my son received as she too is very intelligent. I will be marking in my graduation ceremony in 9 days and have been owking since february as a SEIT (Special Education Itinerant Teacher) at a community headstart and also providing ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapy for a child in his home. I am very satisfied with the big career change. The happiness I feel when I see the children progressing is inexplicable. I believe this was my true calling.

Reliz lives in South Africa, birth place of his father. He left THHS in his junior year, but his love for his alma mater would not let him be without his THHS diploma and so he copleted the ramining requirements by distance education. (He received his diploma from the principal). He also passed very rigorous comprehensive exams in South Africa. He was in a small minority in the country who pass the first time. The curriculum and academic expectations were very different from the American system. Felix attributed his success to the foundation he received in THHS, and he also could not let his alma mater down! Thereafter, Felix graduated from Rhodes University (SA) with majors in drama and history. He is now pursuing a Nursing Degree in Pretoria. he seeks to make a significant and truly needed contribution in the new teansformed South Africa. Felix has looked forward to this 10th Yr reunion with great anticipation because he was not present at his class' graduation. Since he left during the summer of his junior year and did not have the opportunity to see or contact his friends and classmate, this event is truly important for him. Although June 8th falls in the middle of his academic year (he is presently in Nursing School), he will take off a few days to make the 23-hour trip for the reunion. He hopes many if not all the graduates of '98 will also come.

I attended Hofstra University after graduating from THHS for four years, deciding in my junior year to major in English and specialize in Publishing Studies, a program unique to four colleges in the country. About a year into the program I realized that this was an industry without a soul, and I decided to become an English teacher instead, so that I might talk about book all day and get paid for it.

I am now a student at Columbia Teachers College, currently student-teaching at De La Salle Academy in NYC and absolutely loving the work and the students. I except to graduate in December.

I also expect that I will be visiting THHS a bit looking for a job. :)

I attended Harvard University for graduate study, initially to study economics and later to study sociology.  I wrote my Ph. D. dissertation, Educational Maladjustment As a Predisposing Factor in Criminal Careers:  A Comparative Study of Ethnic Groups, under the direction of Talcott Parsons, then widely considered the worlds leading sociological theorist.  Parsons was an unlikely choice as a thesis advisor on a criminological topic.  But I found persuasive Parsonss insights about deviance as well as about the role of education in modern societies.  I continue to be intellectually indebted to Parsons in much of my published writings, although I am better known as a sociologist who has studied school violence rather than as a sociologist specialist on the social theories of Talcott Parsons.


My main professional career was in criminological and education research and specifically in crime and violence in the public schools of urban industrial societies.  After being granted the Ph. D. in 1950, I stayed for a year as a research associate in the Laboratory of Social Relations at Harvard, working with Professor Samuel A. Stouffer.  Appointed an assistant professor of sociology at Rutgers University in 1951, I remained on the Rutgers faculty until my retirement in 2002, becoming an associate professor in 1958 and a full professor in 1961.  I had two administrative positions at Rutgers:  Chair, Department of Sociology, from 1961 to 1969 and Director of the Institute for Criminological Research from 1969 to 1994.  In 1984 I received the Rutgers University Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Research.  During a long career at Rutgers I have taught thousands of students, some in large lecture courses where I had the help of teaching assistants in recitation sections, some in small undergraduate and graduate seminars.  I am currently Professor of Sociology Emeritus at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where I maintain an office and teach an occasional course.


My research interest in adolescent delinquency (and its relation to the educational system) took me beyond the Rutgers campus in New Jersey to various cities in the United States and to cities in Sweden, England, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Japan, New Zealand, and Israel.  The Ford Foundation financed some of my comparative international research dealing with the causes of delinquency; other grants came from such organizations as the National Science Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, and the National Institute of Mental Health.


Since 1966 I have bee listed in Whos Who in America.


I am a member of the American Sociological Association, the Sociological Research Association, the American Society of Criminology, and the National Association of Scholars.


I am currently a Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., where I am completing a small book about higher education as an entitlement.

Children who are in free lunch programs who have a desire to go to college enter the program in the 7th grade or 9th grade.

I just passed my 85th birthday (in 15 years I will be 100) and it is fun to look back to some of the highlights of my life. Among these were some, but not all, of my classes. One that sticks in my mind is Gym.  Those of you who are from the old school will remember that we were housed in the Lexington Avenue and 23rd Street building of the business school. We used the same cafeteria, library, gym and swimming pool as the college. One of the things about the pool is that we were required to swim in the nude. With a bunch of naked boys, this did not amount to anything special except that, on one occasion I looked up in the stands and tehre were several girls (presumably college students) taking it all in. After a few sessions, it became kinda fun.

After CCNY (BSEE), I started in my profession, interrupted it for the work (WWII for you young folks). After many years of travail and fun, I retired in San Diego. Right now, I stay healthy (so to speak) by a regular exercise program at the local YMCA and serve on a couple of civic committees. I am a member of the Mission Valley Planning Committee which is a quasi-official body that tries to keep the developers honest and the city planning department people pure. I also serve on a subcomittee of the City's Arts and Culture Commission. If you visit San Diego and observe the public art, I deny all responsibility!

Since May, I have been serving as the president of the Student Association at Binghamton University. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience. My largest goal has been to make the Student Association less bureaucratic and much more about representing each individual student. We have challenged the BU administration on a number of issues throughout the year where we have felt that students were being left out of the decision making process. In addition, we have worked this year to get students more involved in the city of Binghamton. Through speaking in local rotaries and campaigning hard to have the BU debit card accepted at many local businesses, I am confident that students and community members will begin to see themselves more as a team and less as adversaries.

I have had three separate but complementary careers: 1) Teacher.  I was a mathematics teacher in the New York City high schools for twenty years.  I was dismissed in 1954 during the witch-hunt of the 1950's, and then reinstated with my pension rights restored in 1977.  In 1957 I began teaching at Columbia University, but resigned in 1960 to devote full time to my second profession. 2) Author.  My first book was published in 1952.  I wrote 56 books, and was co-author in 19 different languages.  3) Scientist.  Around 1970 I became interested in the biological question:  Why do the Fibonacci numbers and the golden section occur in planets? My investigation led to a series of four papers in the Journal of Theoretical Biology, and subsequent papers in the Journal of Algebra and the Annals of Botany.  I lectured on the subject at the University of Kansas and at the Institute for Advanced Study.

Honors:  I was awarded the Townsend Harris medal by the City College Alumni Association.  In 1990 I was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Science by St. Michael's College.  In 2002 I was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters by CCNY.

Otherwise I'd be hunting for a job with my other fellow classmates... I worked at Playboy for almost 2 years and then got a job as a designer at Star Magazine. I worked at star for a little over a year when I was offered the position of Associate Art Director for Seventeen magazine. I accepted, but in my absence, Star realized what a loss they were dealing with, and counter-offered in a way that I could not refuse! So now i'm back at Star as Associate Art Director.

His first work composing was scoring the feature-length independent film "3rd On A Match". From sound design to full scoring projects and everything in between, his philosophy of "there is validity in all forms of music" and his love of music in all its permutations is clearly audible in every track he writes.

11/30/2004  Class Note: Mr. Ben Gilbert
You might say I've had four careers, journalism, local government service, civic activities, and work on behalf of the hard of hearing. It is fair to say that roots of those careers sprouted at THHS.
Here is my story:
I entered THHS in 1930 at the age of 12. (Yes, I'm 86.) The school was still in its quarters at 23d and Lexington, occupying a Spartan campus on the Ninth to Twelfth floors of the building which now houses CUNY's Baruch School. My family then lived at 100th Street and West End Ave. I subwayed to school from 96th Street and Broadway to 42nd Street, shuttling to the Lexington Ave. line and on to 23d Street.
A depression year later when the Manhattan apartment became unaffordable, the family moved to Far Rockaway. The trip to THHS became a commute on the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station, and on nice days, a walk to 23d Street.
At Harris, I was one of the editors of the Crimson and Gold year book and got a taste for journalism that has stuck with me. Graduating in 1933, my education moved uptown to City College on St. Nicholas Heights. There, in my senior year (1937) I helped edit the Microcosm year book. You will find me in those year books as Ben W. Goldberg, before I changed my name to Ben W. Gilbert.
My journalism interest was further nourished by two years at the University of Missouri where I received a Master of Arts degree in journalism and worked as a graduate assistant in journalism. That opened the way to my first (paid) newspaper job, as a cub reporter on the St. Louis Star-Times in 1940. I covered the St. Louis City Hall and its bare-knuckled politics.
Mid-1941, the Star-Times sent me to Washington, DC, doubling the size of its one-person Washington bureau. Before long, I drifted over to the Washington Post, beginning a 29 year career there which included stints as a national reporter, an extended period as the newspaper's city editor, eventually moving up to deputy managing editor, and briefly, managing editor.
In 1968, after directing the paper's coverage of the riots that shook the Nation's Capital and many other cities in the wake of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I authored a book on the riots with the collaboration of key staff members. Entitled "Ten Blocks from the White House," it won a Silver Gavel from the American Bar Association for its account of the city's judicial system under stress. I treasure that gavel.
To cover the riots, we fielded nine inter-racial teams of reporters and photographers who brought back graphic word and picture accounts of the happenings. Having those teams was a result of a concentrated effort to integrate the newspaper's previously all white staff. Doing so expanded the newspaper's news coverage to include the burgeoning black community that had been previously ignored. I was particularly proud of the lead role I played in integrating the staff and broadening its scope, then a ground breaking event among American newspapers.
From 1970-1972, I conducted a nightly news show on public television, winning two Emmy awards. Then, for six years I held the post of planning director of the District of Columbia, a dramatic change, but one for which my background in city affairs prepared me. I was the city government's liaison with Congress in securing Congressional enactment of home rule for the city.
In 1984, my wife and I moved to "the other Washington," to the city of Tacoma. I quickly became involved in civic affairs as a volunteer, hanging up a record of 18 years' service on the Tacoma Landmarks Preservation Commission and other civic bodies. I had a role in the cultural unfolding of the city which has now become a major tourist attraction with a museum complex that includes the state history museum, a new Tacoma Art Museum, and the International Museum of Glass. I regard that as my third "career."
With a progressive hearing loss and approaching deafness, I had a cochlear implant installed above one ear in 2001, restoring much of my lost hearing. I became actively involved in SHHH (Self Help for Hard of Hearing People), a fourth "career.". SHHH is a dynamic organization that strives to help people cope with their hearing loss. Currently, I'm a member of both the national and Washington state boards of SHHH. I keep my journalistic hand in, editing two pages about cochlear implants in the state SHHH quarterly newsletter, "Sound Waves," and preparing a monthly newsletter, "Speaking Up," for the Tacoma-SHHH chapter which I previously served as its president.
As noted, I see all four "careers" rooted in the mind-opening courses I took at THHS.

"An Unexpected Harrisite Encounter"

After several hours in a surgical case at SUNY Upstate Medical University (Syracuse, NY), third year medical student Jason Freedman (Class of '98) and Facial Plastics Fellow Dr. Sydney Butts (Class of '90) discovered they were both Townsend Harris Alumni! Over sutures and suction, conversation quickly shifted to professors, academics, extracurriculars, and other fond old memories of THHS. Dr. Butts even mentioned that she had participated in Founder's Day a year or so back. This truly exemplifies the Townsend Harris connection - even in another county and in the middle of an operation - you never know where you'll run into another THHS alum.

11/23/2004  Class Note: Mr. Gerasimos Manolatos

When I graduated from high school, I fell into the trap of utterly committing myself to a career path in which I had many doubts about. As a couple of years passed at Polytechnic Universit, I fell out of love with computer science and in love with journalism. I transferred to Fordham University in the Fall of 2004 and began majoring in communications (with a concentration in political journalism). To accomodate my new career path, I have also begun interning at Air America Radio (7pm - 10pm .... 1190AM in NYC... www.airamericaradio.com) in Manhattan for a show called The Majority Report. It is hosted by Janeane Garofalo (The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Dogma, etc.) and Sam Seder (Who's The Caboose, Man About Town, etc.) and it deals with political and social issues in our current times. I have also undertaken a few writing endeavours of my own. I have tried unsuccessfully (so far) to submit articles to The New York Times and I have become a member of a Newsletter organization at Fordham named "The Fourth Estate". Hopefully, with time, my writing will approach a point of greatness that can be accepted by many people.   That is my life post-THHS so far. Hopefully, I can how everyone else is doing!

I am still so proud of being an alumnus of THHS. I think it was the most influential factor in my later life. I am celebrating, as of Nov. 19th, my 88th birthday. I graduated in January of 1932, having spent most of my high school time at the uptown campus, and then moving to 23rd Street , when the CCNY Business School opened there. After graduating, I returned to the Uptown campus for my first half year at CCNY. After that, it was six more years of "night" college, five nights a week plus Summers, received my BSS degree, and then on to Brooklyn Law School, where I again tried to go "days". After one half year, I went "nights", including Summers, and graduated after three years, passed the Bar exam, and was admitted to the New York Bar. The Army soon invited me to see the "world", and after duty with the Texas Infantry, I was assigned to the Judge Advocate General's Office, where, as an enlisted man ..bad eyes..I was teaching officers all about trial procedures, etc...To make a long story less boring, I never stopped loving the Law, and I STILL GO TO THE OFFICE,,..mostly for the cup of coffee and the hugs of our paralegals..this was in the Boston area for many years, and for the past 25 years, here in Florida.I told my kids not to become lawyers, but..I get no respect..our son is a very active attorney in Massachusetts, and our daughter is the Chief Justice of a Commonwealth Court System.

Personally, it was a bad decision to make since my first impression of the school was a negative one. So not too long after classes started, I withdrew from the university and took a 2-year break from academia. (Mind you, I didn't expect it to be TWO years.) Anyway, now I find myself enrolled in a five-year education program (combination bachelor's/master's in teaching) at Rowan University in New Jersey. I think I've finally found my second home. =)

From William Plapinger, son of Jerome Plapinger:

I write to inform you of the death of my father, Jerome S. Plapinger,
who graduated from Townsend Harris in 1932, on May 31, 2003.  An
obituary from The Washington Post is set forth below after my address.

My father had the good fortune to have the very best education the
City of New York could offer at the time, including Townsend Harris,
the City College of New York and New York University School of Law,
where he as a member of the law review.  But there is no question that
there was no more important place in his life than Townsend Harris
Hall, where he made friends that he continued to have for the
remainder of his life and to which he continued to refer throughout
his long and successful life.

12/04/2003  Class Note: Dr. Eugene Mandel
Attended CCNY 1941-43; NYU College of Dentistry 1944-47. Married in 1948 in New Rochelle to Marga Oppenheim,an RN at Queens General Hospital who had emigrated in 1941 with her family from Hamburg to the USA (via Stockholm,Moscow,Vladivostok,Kobe and San Francisco). An extended car-camping trip we took across the country in the summer of '49 brought us to San Francisco. As we'd used up the modest amount of cash with which we'd left New York, there was no choice but to stay in California and find work. After obtaining my dental license in California -I had a license in New York State but reciprocity in dental licensure between States has never existed - I started a practice in San Francisco. That was interrupted after 4 years by a 2 year stint as a dentist in the Navy in Southern California. On return to civilian life, we (my wife and I with the 3 children we'd somehow acquired between 1950 and '54) settled in the Santa Clara Valley, now better known as Silicon Valley, where I started a practice in the city of Santa Clara. Dentistry turned out to be a very gratifying profession. I've been retired since 1993 and enjoy reading,classical music, walking and swimming. All three of our children live close-by and we have five grandchildren, the oldest of whom is married and very recently had a baby boy, making us great grandparents. Having a close-knit family has been the greatest source of pleasure. We attended my THHS class reunion in 1991 in Queens - it was a memorable gathering mixing sentiment and humor.

I graduated Stevens Institute of Technology in May 2003 with High Honor, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. I have currently relocated to Maryland, near the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area, employed by AT&T.

After what would probably be my last free summer, in August '03, I started work as part of the Technology Leadership Program, Second Class (aka TLP2). I was hired as a Senior Technical Associate I, and the program lasts for 2 years. Training was completed back in mid-October and I am now working on projects (programming/testing). It is enjoyable and the people are friendly - yet - who would've thought I'd move away from NYC? After the two years are up, we will see what will happen - either stay where I am, move elsewhere within AT&T, or maybe something different altogether.

We culminated our trip by hiking the Inca Trail for 4 days. Afterwards, we went to England and then hit the beach in the Algarve, the southern coast of Portugal for some fun in the sun.

After graduation I attended SUNY Maritime college, planning for an illustrious career as a merchant seaman. Sadly, it took me four years and then some, to realize that this was not the profession that I wanted to pursue. I had a girlfriend at the time, and leaving for a couple of months at a time just didn't sound thrilling. Lucky for me, I wound up marrying that girl on July 21, 2001, Eight years and one day from the start of our courtship.
    After college, I went into the field of stocks and bonds, trying my luck at making money off of other people misfortunes(Ever see Boiler Room?). After that debacle, I went on to Norton Lilly, a shgipping agent based in New Jersey. That was another short and illustrious career. Finally, I found my current employer, Verizon, and for the last four years have been working with that little company.
    Throughout all this, I was fortunate to visit a few foreign lands, such as; England, France, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Azores, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, Bahamas, and so on...
    All in all, Life has been good so far, and the future looks bright.

I'm no doctor, I'm no Lawyer, I'm no teacher. I am pure evil: I'm in the entertainment industry. For about 2 years after college, I worked in film as a script supervisor on various indie features, commercials and videos. I then made the transition from freelance to staff when I moved on to Time Warner as a copywriter. From there I segued into on-air writing and producing and landed a position in those capacities at Bravo and The Independent Film Channel in 1999.

I'm the Senior Writer/Producer of On-Air & Video Promotions here and it's a fine time. Work keeps me pretty busy but occasionally I find time to teach a weekend screenwriting class to junior high kids. I suppose I should really start thinking about what I want to be when I grow up, since the big "3-0" is mere months away, but right now I've only got my sights set as far as April 5th when the Star Wars exhibit opens at the Brooklyn Museum.

"Yes, that's all well and good. But do you all remember the senior prank of 1997? We filled the lobby with lemons and threw that soda-can sculpture of "Harold" over the balcony onto the square that is known as "freshman square." (My own term) That was definitely a defining moment in the history of my class. For a while, we were known as the worst class in THHS history. It was a good feeling. Can any class since us claim to repeat our triumph? No, I think not. Being an Archon president I know that I have seen many things, but that was definitely the most fun I have ever had in this school. So please. Recognize & respect. That's all yes yes y' all.

BS in chemistry, CCNY 1943, Army service in Europe in 13th Airborne Division (lucky me -- one of the only two divisions in the army that never saw combat). Then got a Ph.D. in organic chemistry at Brooklyn Polytechnic. After a couple of jobs in the NY area I moved to California and spent the next 25 years doing research on high energy solid rocket propellants. I am happy to say that nothing I ever worked on ever ended up in a real missile! During that time I also taught an introductory course in astronomy at a community college for nine years, until the administration allowed courses in astrology to be introduced and I resigned in protest. After retirement in 1981 I became "Dr. Rocket" in which guise, and with the sponsorship of my company, I visited schools and gave talks on rockets, space exploration, and astronomical topics. This lasted for nine years, until the cold war ended, the company lost contracts, and couldn't afford me any longer. After moving here I became something of an outdoors person - bird watching and going on week-long solo backpacking trios in the Sierra Nevada mountains. In the 70s I returned to my first love, photography, which some of you may remember I was fanatical about. I studied briefly with Ansel Adams, had a successful one-man show, won a couple of contests, had some magazine covers accepted, and even sell a picture from time to time.

Currently, in addition to the photography work, I do the bookkeeping and billing for my wife's law office and am her computer maven. I have been married to this beautiful California shiksa since 1956. We have three children and two fine grandsons and live in a small town in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. Come and visit!
