Kurt was a brilliant student when he wanted to be. Kurt was also a major non-conformist. We had a geometry class together and Kurt was continually in trouble with our teacher. At the end of the year when we received our grades, he had received a "C". Kurt asked our instructor "after 'A`s" on all my tests why did you give me a "C", to which our instructor replied: "because I don`t like you" Bradford had some really dandy teachers, I bet you can think of a few more.

Terry thanks for the comment. I can identify with Kurt.  I was also in trouble for not being a conformist. The teacher sounds like Mr.Cosner.

How can we ever forget Mr Stocker.

Terry thanks again see you at the reunion.

I knew Kurt starting in 4th grade when we went to Sunnyside. I was always jealous because he lived right across the street from school, and I had to walk it seemed, a long way! I also remember that Kurt was a fun-loving, happy kid all through school, when we played baseball at lincoln park, and even as I would bump into him each week as I stopped in to a favorite bar of his on my beer-selling route. It was on Sheridan road near 83rd street. I remember the time ( maybe junior high, maybe senior ) when him and Pat Adamson and a few others were doing a scit that called for one of them to come up on stage for something. They kept calling for Pat, until he SCREAMED "I don't want to" really loud.Then Kurt leaped out of his chair and jumped up on the stage. Whatever the scit was, I don't remember, but it was typical of Kurt. He was a one of a kind!!! Wally Glerum from Arizona
