Veterans Day 2010

Written by Sean Murphy. Posted in skmurphy

I was fortunate to have J. Brian Barry as a high school science teacher.  I have been reflecting on his life on Veterans Day am grateful for his service in WW2 and as a teacher.

He passed away last Friday at the age of 86 from  mesothelioma.  He joined the Royal Navy in 1942 when he turned 18 and served until 1960, retiring to teach  high school physics for 44 years.  He was creative and engaging as a teacher and I can recall working on experiments involving subliminal perception and a Van de Graaff generator.
