Had a really great random virtual encounter with a classmate. Out of the blue, got an email asking, ‘Is this the Hans Wittich from Gilman?’ It was from Paul Bierman! He is a professor at University of Vermont. He apparently was researching some old army stuff for a book he’s writing, and stumbled across some information about a guy who went to McDonogh (Joe Franklin), and it mentioned his sister Jean Wittich. The guy was my uncle, who was a career army guy. Had some great back-and-forth with Paul, glad to report he is a super good guy, even after all these years, hadn’t seen him since graduation!
