    It was Dave Dalgleish and Mohamed Elsabbagh, Sidney Korn and Gadi Venkatesulu.

    I was not too fond of Mr. Korn and Mr. Marshall scared me so I never took one of his classes.

    Your confusing Elsibah and Venkatesulu. Venkauesulu was the tall thin professor from India. Elsibah was a little shorter and I believe he is Egyptian. Both phenomenal teachers!

    A book was published to celebrate the centenial anniversary of Spring Garden Institute. It is available at the Free Library of Philadelphia. Call number 607 Sp8, “A Century of Service; Philadelphia Spring Garden Institute”. I’m really interested in checking out a copy and posting a scan.

    Trying to find out if this is the Spring Garden Academy mentioned in a diary I’m transcribing from 1866. The author of the diary taught Elocution at the Academy in 1866, and one of his co-workers was a Professor John P. Birch. I appreciate any assistance you can offer. Unfortunately many of the buildings and places he mentions are now gone and being that it was 150 years ago, there’s no one around to ask! Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for posting! This new site adds significant capabilities over the old site and I’m hoping more people take advantage of them.

    Thanks for setting up this site. I was great to find it. I graduated in 1984 from the Mermaid Lane location.
