Germantown High School * Philadelphia, PA. * Class of 1957


Memories of GHS:

Richard Breyer

My early years were pretty confused and unmemorable. I tried the “hoody” look but motorcycle boots and peg pants weren’t my thing, especially since Mom kept un-pegging my pants and required frequent haircuts so the D.A. style was impossible. It was, therefore, easier (and cheaper) to go with the flattop haircuts, chinos and white bucks! Enjoyed J.V. football (though not very good at it!), played drums in the band and student government in my senior year was a “gas.” Tumble Inn was the place to be every Friday night and I’ll never forget the senior class trip and Prom night (weekend). Made lots of friends and, all in all, enjoyed my Germantown years.

Faculty: Major memories--Bill Bernardo and Mr. Augustine, Phys Ed and football; Mr. Evans, band; and most memorable Merv Krimmans, great teacher who made learning fun.
