I was privileged to be a student in Mr. Wright's American History class in my junior year at Brookline High 1959-60. He came to a number of our reunions and we exchanged reminiscences and via mail, particularly about classmates who had died prematurely.
I hadn't known of his musical talents or of his military service in both WWII and Korea. He was so modest, but at least now we know that we were taught the history of our country by a member of "the greatest generation."
What a gift it would be if every high school student in the USA could be as fortunate as we were to have such a teacher.
Bradford Wright, may YOUR name be for a blessing.
