Mr. Fred McFeely Rogers -- 1928 - 2003 My picture of his first out-of-studio remote production that I helped arrange at Churchill High School. See the video from the show Dr. William Orr was one of my father's favorite teachers at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and a generation later the favorite teacher of Fred Rogers. Fred asked Dr. Orr, ‘What is that one little word that will fell the prince of darkness, the word that will strike down evil?’ After a few quiet seconds, Dr. Orr replied: ‘One little word: forgive - Father forgive them for they know not what they do.’ He went on, You know, Fred, there is only one thing evil cannot stand, and that is forgiveness." My uncle, Rev. G. Mason Cochran, was Mr. Rodgers homiletics professor at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. One day he called Fred into his office and told him, "Fred, no Presbyterian congregation will ever give you a call to be their pastor! He convinced Fred that his ordination should be to minister to children through the medium of television. congested passageway." i.e. Church doors, bottom of escalators, theater isles. #2 The hardness of the butter is inversely proportional to the hardness of the roll The softer the roll, the harder the butter."

Family History History of the Family of Anthony Schaeffer 1744-1999 Henry Alvindore Schaeffer - How G.Grandfather won the Civil War! Rev. Lee Schaeffer My fathers ministry Chartiers Hill Presbyterian Church - Where my father started his ministry Blairsville Presbyterian Church where I grew up My father became the pastor of Blairsville Presbyterian Church in December of 1950. Thus began many years of shoveling walks, cutting grass, keeping the lights lit on the Christmas trees, running the PA system and all the other responsibilities and duties of the "The Preachers Kid." One of the church Elders, Attorney Samuel Miller who lived above the old Blairsville Library, had one of the first 7 Hallicrafter televisions in town.When he was on the committee to call my father to the Blairsville church, he told me that I could come over and watch it anytime I wanted. I coveted that set and now have two of them in my collection of antique television equipment. He also told me that if I persuaded my to come to Blairsville, I would have a free pass to the local movie theater. Hallicrafter 505 circa 1949 with Channels #1-12 About 1952 Attorney Miller purchased one of every known piece of audiovisual equipment as a gift for the Blairsville Presbyterian Church.As a 10-year-old, I was delegated the assignment of figuring out this state-of-the-art technology! This launched my AV career. Recording the Christmas Service for the shut-ins was father's first idea for the Ampro Tape Recorder 751a. tape recorder that used a flickering neon light to set the record levels. Listen to my father's 1959 Christmas Message The Tin Cup His favorite Story Recorded in 1978 I could not understand why all the people decorating the church were so interested in hearing their voices recorded and played back while I set up the machine. Not until years later when I became interested in the history of communications that I found that this was one of the first non-commercial recorders available. While it was new to me, I did not realize that it was also new to all the adults as well. These audio visual experiences eventually lead to a degree in The Physics at Monmouth College and a Masters Degree in Educational Communications at Syracuse A 32-year career as the technology coordinator for the Churchill/Woodland Hills Schools. Technological History of Churchill/Woodland Hills High Schools With the help of Mark Rosner and the student assistants in the data center, I developed a mark sense card system for ordering films from the Allegheny County Intermediate Unit Film Library. This system was eventually adopted by the Film Library for all the schools in the county. General Automation SPC series PRIME Computer Got a deal on Radio Shack terminals and printers for Churchill School District. Designed the hardware to connect the main frame at the CAHS District office to the high School over 1000' of data cable using optical isolators.

I had to mass produce a circuit board to connect between the terminal and the printer to block the LF command. Radio Shack Model I - Played with in the store.

"By your links shall ye be known" Many years ago, groundhog pups were given to Indiana County Boy Scout troops to raise. The most sociable one became Phil at Punxsutawney's next groundhog day. I got to raise Phil one summer since our house was next to the Blairsville church where Troop #4 met (And where my father was the minister.) The Indiana BSA Council took him with us to the 1957 Jamboree at Valley Forge, PA. Since Phil has national fame, we were asked to bring him to the remote studio of the TODAY SHOW with Dave Garoway We had to get up before daybreak and hike several miles to get there in time. When we arrived, we were informed that a bread truck hit a telephone pole and knocked out the coaxial cable back to New York and so we lost our 15 minutes of fame!
