Spotswood High School History Club Visit With Mr. Heim
As I stated in the intro, in the last years of Albert Heim's life The Spotswood High School History Club formed a bond with the elderly First World War Veteran. We would keep in touch by mail and phone, and send him cards and little gifts. I would also bring History Club students by to visit with him, which he really loved. Indeed, on those occasions when I would stop by on my own his first question would be,"where are the kids today"? I think Mr. Heim himself best put into words what this interaction with these students meant to him. In a letter to the Spotswood High School History Club not long before his passing, Albert Heim Wrote: "After so many years, it seems like ones involvement in the First World War is all but forgotten. You young people have made me feel appreciated again".
