Dr. Stanley Sheinkopf passed away on Monday, April 14. Dr. Sheinkopf taught English in Pasadena public and private schools for more than forty-four years. He graduated from UCLA
in 1957 and received a Ph.D. in comparative literature from Occidental College in 1972. Beginning in the late 50's he taught in the Pasadena Unified School District, and his final teaching years, 1984-2003, were spent at Polytechnic School, Pasadena.
He inspired students and colleagues with his enthusiasm for life and literature, his commitment to the overall life of the Poly community and his passion for teaching. He brought words to life in a fascinating and unforgettable way.
