Jacob Tooker, Principal 1846-1848
Was surprised today by an email from the Albany Institute of History and Art in a couple of ways. The first was that the writer said they had a bible with an inscription inside the cover noting it as a gift from the students of the Brockport Collegiate Institute to Jacob Tooker, who was principal for two years. The writer asked if I'd like it for the archives, since it has no connection to Albany etc. and of course I do. The other thing is that the writer asked if I'd gone to high school in Delmar NY, which I had, I recognized his name, younger brother of a girl I dated 40+ years ago!
