    Mr Endicott was my high school American history teacher in the late 1950’s. I also knew him from the unique and wonderous place called Teen Town. Mr. Endicott was the sponsor/monitor and the one who made it happen. Not many accomplished what he did with Teen Town, a safe and fun place for teens.
    I wish I had paid more attention to the wonderful slides he shared with us from his travels to all the Civil War battleground sites. Happy 100th Birthday! Ann Malloy now known as Patricia Syens.
