I just saw this. I was on the fencing team at NTW where Mr. Campbell was the coach. In 1972 we won the State championship. I remember the team going to his home. We enjoyed wine and bacon wrapped appetizers. The first time I ever felt like an adult. He was a great guy. I am a better person for having known him.

Mr. Campbell was my fifth through eighth grade teacher at Sunset Ridge School in Northfield, Illinois.

He had an enormous influence on me, and I think of him often. Whenever I think of the teachers I had, his is the first name to come to mind. I so appreciate his unorthodox methods and tough assignments.

Deepest condolences,

Mr. Campbell was the most wonderful, caring teacher!! He made us want to enter the world of literature by reading to us aloud and making stories come alive. His eyes spoke so well for his passion for teaching and for seeing his students gain confidence and excitement. He was my freshman and my senior English teacher at New Trier West. After freshman year, he went to England to teach. I remember worrying if he would come back to Winnetka because he was SO great! Well, he came back and explained to us as 15 year olds how much he had learned in England. THIS stuck with me and made me want to live abroad, too. He was my model! When I lived in France during college, Mr. Campbell put me in touch with his best friends in England. They invited me to their home - the home where he had spent so many wonderful moments in England. I remember hearing Mrs. Campbell, Rosie, play the dulcimer so beautifully. I was thrilled to be able to tell my memories to Mr. Campbell at our Class of 1969 reunion at Hackneys a few years ago...He glowed with smiles, and I felt so thankful that I could tell him how much he influenced my life. He truly had an international perspective, an openness and a zest for teaching ALL students. I teach thanks to Mr. Campbell. Thank you for sharing your wonderful Dad and Grandfather with so many students who will cherish him forever.
Very sincerely,

So sorry for your loss. Mr. Campbell was my favorite teacher at New Trier West. I'll never forget him standing on his desk to read a speech from The Odyssey. He was a great teacher and a deeply kind man. (class of 1969)
