I was an education and psychology major while at Simmons but was lucky enough to take a class with Professor Halko. He made the material come alive and was such a memorable teacher. Once you knew him, he would always be there for you to talk about any subject. He was a true mentor and embodied why Simmons was such a wonderful school to attend.

I attended Simmons College graduating in 1964. I never had Hank Halko for a course but enjoyed his lectures to my freshman class.

My great grandmother Sophie was Henry's sister. I grew up in Stafford, but my parents brought me to Chestnut Hill to visit Uncle Henry and Aunt Jane a few times as a child. I will never forget a visit when I was about eight years old. He took us around the freedom trail and gave me an immersive day of Boston history. We finished up the day at the children's museum, where he climbed through all of the exhibits with me. He and Jane bought me the coolest Pocahontas Barbie doll in Faneuil Hall after we had dinner at Durgin-Park. I played with my new doll while he showed me all of his "crib sets," nativities that he and Jane collected throughout their travels.

I fell in love with both Boston and History that day. I went on to study Art History at both the BA and MA level, and I have been living just outside of Boston for the past seven years.

Although we did not keep in touch must past my adolescent years, Uncle Henry made a huge impact on who I am as a person, largely shaping my interests and exposing me to the great big world beyond my small hometown. I was happy to learn that we share an affinity for museums, animals, and flowers...three things that are very dear to me!

I remember Mr. Halko fondly as a wonderful teacher who clearly had a passion for history. Thank you for sharing that passion with your students and we few history majors.
