Chemistry and Physics. One day in Chemistry he drew a perfect circle on the blackboard with his back turned to the board, the whole class gasped. That was about 57 years ago. RIP Mister Mink.

My name is Nancy Buchanan Quincy, and Mr. Mink is one of my best memories of BHS. I was not the best student, but Mr. Mink through his enthusiasm and unique teaching style brought chemistry alive for me. I remember the periodic table, or most of it, to this day (I am 75) and the lab work was SO much fun. And I actually understood it, thanks to him. He was a very special person, and I am truly sorry for your loss.

The website for the 50th reunion of the Burlingame Highschool Class of 1964 referred me to this website. Mr. Mink was my chemistry teacher who sent me on a long career of academic biosciences. I was goofing around in chemistry class one day and he reprimanded me by saying "this class seems too easy for you but many in here are struggling". It was the first time I realized that the chemicals sciences were "second nature to me". I went on to graduate degrees in chemistry, professorships, and then Deans positions. I must say Mr. Mink was my launching pad. By best to his family.

He was Mr. Mink to me and he taught me chemistry at BHS. My lab partner always lit the bunson burner when we had experiments. He got ill, and I was left to do it on my own. I was terrified. Finally, he told the kids around me to offer no assistance, but I still refused to light it. On the day President Kennedy was killed, he had enough trust in me to send me out of the room to find out what was happening. I did and came back to whisper that the President was dead. That was a profound moment that we shared. He attended one of our reunions,we chatted and he remembered Nov. 22, 1963 but had thankfully forgotten about the bunson burner. Thanks to wonderful models like Mr. Mink, I became a teacher, too.
