    RIP Dr D. I remember vividly that day in 1974, (as acting headmaster because TGS was on extended absence) when he came in to cover for our teacher on leave. He conducted trivia for our eighth grade (standard) class, and that was the we learned that Boeing aircraft was manufactured in Seattle, USA. He was a tall man with a very nice disposition. He spoke very clearly and softly. He created an environment at DMS for the students of the day, to be at ease and comfortable.
