Bob was class of ’48, one of the founders of the Centennial Award and responsible for the resurrection of the alumni association. His contributions to the school, city of Rensselaer and Capital District at large are so numerous that if you ever doubted your roots or school, this is the man to look up to and emulate for he is one of our own. For his complete obituary, you can visit our Facebook page or search online.
VRHS grad William Staats, Class of 1950, has done it again. His second book, Harvard On The Hudson: (College fun recollections of an Emeritus Professor) is a fun-to-read 300+ page collection of anecdotes from 47 years of teaching. The content includes vignettes about students, faculty, administrators and support staff and the fun experiences of raising seven children as well as unique travel experiences from the 1950’s through the early 2000’s.
It’s the type of book that you can open to about any page, read a few anecdotes and repeat the process whenever you need a lift in spirits. Get a few copies, it makes a fine surprise gift for someone you grew up with!
William's previous book, Three Centuries on the Hudson River: One Family...One Dutch House is also a fun read. The Story of Hoogebergh, a 1696 family homestead on the banks of the Hudson River just south of Rennselaer is told by one member of the eleven generations of Staats who have owned and occupied the fieldstone structure since Dutch colonial days.
