Rev. George J. Feldman, O. Praem.
b. Sunday, June 9, 1918 – d. Monday, Aug. 5, 2002

Our brother George Feldman was born in Wilmington, Delaware in 1918.  Having graduated with the first class from Archmere, he joined the Order after his freshman year at the college in 1937, and was solemnly professed in 1942.  He was assigned to the faculty of Southeast Catholic in 1941, and transferred to St. Norbert High in 1942, where he was advisor to “Hi Times”, the school paper until 1948, when he returned to Southeast, and moderated “The Rocket.”

1949 found “Jack” at Archmere teaching English, religion and speech and moderating “The Green Arch.”  Having spent the previous summers at Villanova, he earned an M.A. from there in Education in 1954. 

Jackson was appointed principal of St. Norbert High in 1958. The school moved and became Abbot Pennings High School in 1959, and Jack remained there until 1968.  While principal, Jack spent most of his mornings walking from the school to the priory, smoking several cigarettes, waiting for the mail to arrive, sorting it, and then carrying the mail back to his office before returning to the priory for lunch and a nap.

Jackson did parochial ministry from Sunshine Priory in Clearwater, Florida from 1968 through 1976, when he became executive director of the Abbot Pennings Foundation and superior of the college priory.  He died on Monday, August 5, 2002 at the age of 84

If you have a photograph of this Norbertine, we would love to hear from you.
