E. Lee Goldsborough, Jr. taught English at Valley Forge Military Academy, 1933-37

My dad was born June 25, 1903, in Washington, DC. He and Mom married August 1, 1933, in Oil City, PA. She was 23. They lived in a two-story apartment, still standing, on West Wayne Ave. in Wayne, PA. In the fall of 1933, Dad began teaching English at Valley Forge Military Academy, when he was 30.

There's a JOKE about me and this military uniform: When I was a kid about 1945 in Narberth School, many of the fathers of my classmates were in WW II. I had seen my father's military uniform in our attic, so I assumed he was in the military. When asked by my classmates if he was, I replied, "Yes, at Valley Forge."

No one laughed, they didn't know. The teacher who overheard this did not correct me, but told Mother. They got a good laugh!
