William E 'Bill' Meals (1954)

When  I  told my Mother that Mr. Swartz was one of my instructors she asked if it was Harry Swartz.  Now she claimed that he was her teacher when he was very young and flunked her in some course she was taking at school in Wilmington, CA.  I asked him about that and he said he did not recall flunking anyone.  He signed my Copa with a note saying he really didn't believe he flunked her. 

I remember a few of the girls in the class doubted he read every test paper when he assigned grades.  Several of them would write the first few paragraphs relative to what the test was about then write in some cooking recipes and finish with a paragraph related to the actual test.  Papers came back with A and A+ grades.  The course was World Geography if my  memory is still with me.  Anyhow, everyone really liked him, great personality and always good for a few laughs.
