I will never forget that day.  It was a Friday and we had shortened classes that day and a late lunch in advance of games with visiting teams from other schools.  I was 13 years old and a freshman at Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts.  I was in Latin class as the chilling announcement came over the loud speaker.  We were all shcoked, but my elderly Latin teacher instantly turned ashen.  As it turned out, he died two days later of the shock.  In a matter of hours we had lost a President and a teacher.  Et tu Lee Harvey Oswald?

What a terrible story about your teacher. We lived in Los Angeles and my father worked for the government. We moved to Washington, D.C. the day of JFK's funeral. What tragic times those were.

I am so sorry to read about your latin teacher - I loved my latin teacher dearly - she was everything that a Latin teacher should be - slightly quirky and wonderful - she went to Wellesley - I was at Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill and it was a magnificent day - pretty warm for the season and sunny - I remember being outside getting ready for carpool  and hearing the news
