FRIENDS I REMEMBER FROM HOWE
I shall not put these in order of importance as all are important to my memory.
I have already mentioned Frank Tout, Bruce Beck and Ellen O’Drain, but their names will, no doubt, come up again.
Let me mention Pat Friedly, one of the best English teachers I ever knew. Hard working, enthusiastic, low key, and unafraid to tackle any problems or situations; that was Pat. She attracted the bright students, but handled the others with aplomb.

Charles DeBow, Howe teacher, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen
This is a picture of the original Tuskegee airmen. It was submitted to me by Howe alumnus, James Neel from the class of 1958. James posted a message on the board asking whether a teacher who taught in the 50s at Howe named Charles DeBow might be the same Charles DeBow who was one of the original Tuskegee airmen. He and I both started researching and found that the Charles DeBow from the airmen was listed as being from Indianapolis, IN!
