John True Ridley, ’60 has passed away.
Mr. Ridley taught English at Mt. Greylock Regional High School in Williamstown. In 1965, he began working at Houghton Mifflin. In 1991, he was appointed vice president of the school division. Then he became vice president of the school marketing division and corporate vice president of educational strategic development. He retired in 2001.
Most interesting story was:
For the next four years [after 1961] he taught English at Mt. Greylock Regional High School in Williamstown where he also directed some student productions and appeared in faculty plays.
I’d wager that, later in life, Ridley looked back on that time with great fondness.
Condolences to all.
