l A SALUTE TO Miz. ROBERTS
Last September Mr. Garnett Roberts graciously
assumed the administrative duties at Kensington
during the illnesses of Mr. Chassin and Mr. Axlerod.
Thirty-four years ago Mr. Roberts began his adminis-
trative career in Buffalo, as assistant principal of
Masten Park under Dr. Fosdick, and later under Mr.
Hersey. He became principal in 1939, and remained
at the helm until Masten's closing in l953. Mr.

earlier days, he was an avid outdoors man, as well as
a coach and golf fan. Now, his main interests are
photography and oil painting.
