Mr. Zapf was my first music teacher. I was six years old when I ventured to his home for piano lessons. He also taught my sister piano previously. He became a very good friend of our family.

When I began attending Olney in 1963 he took me under his wing and began to give me organ lessons. However, I was already an accomplished French Horn player by that time so the organ lessons did not last too long.

Then years later I was performing with the Theater Orchestra at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. I received a phone call at my boarding house and it was Mr. Zapf and his beautiful wife. They came to the boarding house and we had a wonderful visit. I was to later find out from my mother that he had passed away while in Acapulco soon after our visit. (1978)

I feel that it was kismet that he was the first musical influence when I was six and he made an appearance at what became the Twilite of my musical career.

Thank you, Mr. Zapf (Karl "with a 'K") for all you did for me in those early years.

Very sad to hear this news.  He was an Olney Icon.

It was delightful and inspiring to have Mr. Josephson as a teacher.  I throughly enjoyed his classes and felt lucky to be in them.  Although he is at peace, I have no doubt he is delighting other souls where he is now.  Also he lives in the hearts and minds of his students who are still here.

Reconnected with Mr. J a few years ago. He was my World Cultures teacher in 12th grade and one of my favorites.  A friend of mine who worked with him at Olney used to visit him each month for coffee and conversation and invited me to join them when I retired.  Mr.  J was erudite and able to quote Shakespeare, Churchill, or Wilde.  Our conversations usually lasted 3 hours and covered a wide variey of subjects.  He visited us when we were having a wedding party for my son and his wife.  Looking quite daper and regaling my guests with stories of his travels, he enjoyed himself imensely was imensely enjoyed.  He was a teacher in Scotland and Alaska in the 1950's and Hawaii (I think) and traveled extensively in Asia and Europe.  I will miss our monthy conversations.  RIP Mr. J.

Well people...here I am back in Pennsylvania again. My husband Bob passed away 1 year ago and my daughter insisted that I leave Arizona to be closer to her family. I've been living in California and then Arizona since 1988, so I'm not really thrilled about being in the cold weather again. But, I have a nice condo on a golf course in Warrington. Anybody live up this way?

So sorry to hear this. She was a nice girl. I hung around with her and Linda Kaupp in 7th and 8th grade at Creighton for awhile. May she rest in peace ??
