Feldman, Laurence M.

Laurence Feldman was a student at Mar-Ken School, and he later taught there. He tells us: “I entered Mar-Ken in September 1947 as a 6th grade student, was advanced a grade to 7th during the second semester and did indeed graduate in 1952 after some juggling of records based upon attendance at each summer school. After having graduated during the spring of 1952 I entered UCLA, taught a class during the summer when Mar-Ken held summer school in Cuernavaca and continued teaching an intro language course at Mar-Ken during the Autumn semester as I recall using Mario Pei’s 1949 book on language as a text.

Larry is now living in Arizona, and has retired from his position as Head, Sciences and Engineering Libraries, Lederle Graduate Research Center, University of Massachusetts.
