Sounds like a typical career civil servant type background.
Sorry if this bores but by the time I knew Chief Stevens
he was one of those teachers you find in every HS (often
PE Dept) who stays past optimal retirement point because
he loved kids and didn’t know what to do w/himself. He
cut a Mr Magoo type figure w/white hair growing out his
ears and nostrils, clicking false teeth, and often had the
signature “teacher breathe”going on. You probably know
him from your own HS experience. Never had a cross word
to say and if an underclassman was giving him grief in the
hallway the kid was destined for a thumpin’ by you or
I had a chat-up w/ Chief at my classmate’s pharmacy in the
early 80s about 15 yrs after graduation. He was there to
have his BP read for free. I was surprised he was still
around. He passed the following week. Thanks for taking
time to read this rather ungermain stuff.
