In Memory

Rudy Kolleck

Mr. Kolleck served as our class advisor and was a close friend to many of us.  Born in Philadelphia in 1931, he graduated from the Philadelphia Museum College of Art and taught at HMHS until he retired in 1996. His family moved to Venice, Florida, where he enjoyed retirement for five years. Mr. Kolleck was survived by his wife of 43 years, Marie, two daughters, and two grandchildren.  (Sarasota Herald-Tribune (FL) - Monday, April 23, 2001)

From the Shield '66:

Rudolph C. Kolleck. It is with sincerity and a great deal of unspoken gratitude that we devote this page to Mr. Rudolph C. Kolleck. His unceasing diligence has enabled us to fulfill our role as an active, participating class in the network of students and teachers working together towards a healthful, educational goal. I'm sure Charlie Brown would agree with us when we say, "Happiness is having an understanding art teacher for a class advisor."

I wish I had some artistic talent, other than with a camera (it's the closes I come). I would love to have taken art under Mr. Kolleck. Sadly, I have no such talent. It's so sad to think all our teachers are either gone or not far from it.
