Metzger Passes Into Shadow

While Cameron and I dodged his fearsome bullet, I know many of you did take Masterpieces, so this unfortunate news will interest you:

Sad News
We are sorry to report that Mike Metzger, teacher at Harvard School, Westlake School for Girls and Harvard-Westlake School from 1989 until his retirement in 2002, passed away yesterday in St. Louis, Missouri.

According to Headmaster Tom Hudnut, "Mike taught math and Latin and Great Books and coached football. He did everything with a wry smile and an ironic wit and was a lovable, crusty guy of the Old School who had a heart of gold. He loved teaching and coaching, he loved his colleagues and his students. Among all his other interests, he was particularly passionate about what I would nebulously call the 'soul of the school.' He cared deeply about ethics and values and held himself and his students to the highest standards of integrity. Those of us who knew him as teacher, coach, colleague or friend are unquestionably the richer for it.

Letters of condolence may be sent to:
Judy Metzger
5009 Bellarina Drive
St. Louis, MO 63129
