William Brickman, Doctoral Professor
Wanner, Raymond E.
European Education, v42 n2 p78-82 Sum 2010
In this article, the author talks about his encounter with Brickman and the things he admired of him as his teacher. The author had the good fortune of having two great teachers over a twenty-three-year period of formal education, one at each end of the educational spectrum. The first was the Reverend Vincent Eaton, his English teacher during the first, second, and fourth year of high school at St. Charles College, a preparatory school in Catonsville, Maryland, for studies leading to the Roman Catholic priesthood. The second was Dr. William Brickman, his doctoral professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Both regrettably are deceased; both were great men and great teachers. Both demanded much of their students and gave much to them. Both treated their students unfailingly with dignity and respect. He did not go to the University of Pennsylvania to study under Brickman. He met him there by chance on July 1, 1968 at a summer course on international education.
