Harbor Creek Township
High School Faculty September 1939
Contributed by Katie Rose Costello
The photo below and information
about it has been provided by our Greene Township coordinator Katie Rose
Costello. She provides the following information:
"My parents were both
educators. My Dad taught reading and English, as I understand it, at
Harbor Creek High School, and my Mom taught business subjects. She was a
young, (just graduated from Mercyhurst College) beginning teacher, and lived
in Erie, as did my Dad. Somehow, she started riding with him, as she had no
car at the time. I guess riding together led to love, as they were eventually
married, and had three children. I donít believe they taught together for too
many years, but this photo must have been early in Momís teaching days. Here
they are, both in this photo of the faculty at Harbor Creek High School!
Mom is in the center, with square neck, and puffed sleeve polka-dotted dress,
and Dad is in front, second from left. I do not know the names of any of the
other faculty members, although a couple of them look somewhat familiar.
My Dad was born in 1909, and died in 1984, and Mom was born in 1918, and died
in 2002. They were married in 1943, during a 3 day pass my Dad got
from the military."
If anyone has additional information or comments concerning this photo, please contact Katie Rose Costello directly.
