The man, the myth, the living legend John G. Schuler is scheduled to speak at the Wellesley Men’s Group, sponsored by the Wellesley Service League, at its end of year luncheon on Tuesday, June 6, 11:30am – 1:30pm at the Wellesley Community Center, 219 Washington St. All senior men are invited. Please email or call Helen Goins with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-690-7867
If Schuler’s name doesn’t ring a Big Ben-sized bell in your head, let me enlighten you. A lifelong resident of Wellesley, Schuler is a graduate of Wellesley High School, Class of 1949, and went on to Harvard. He was a teacher and chairman of the History Department at Dana Hall School, and has been a Town Meeting member for over 60 years. He’s also served on the Wellesley Housing Authority, the Trails Committee, and the Council on Aging. That list doesn’t even scratch the surface of his many accomplishments; this write up by Wellesley High School graduate’s Kenyon Alexander goes into greater depth. (It’s part of Wellesley Memories, a project created by Wellesley High School students who are working to compile citizens’ memories of town.)
One more cool fact: he keeps a Model T in A-one condition. It’s the one he impressed the girls with at Wellesley High, back in the 40s. These days, the girls are still impressed, but its the grandkids who get to take a spin.
