Best prof I had at Phillips. Had a vibrant love of history. Learned more in a 3 quarter 4 unit course than 10 times that many classes for a history degree from Stanford.
I had Mr. Richards as a student many years ago. He was a terrible teacher then and vindictive in his judgements of students.
After reading prior posts, I feel compelled to note for the record that Mr. Richards was an awful Dean of Students and a terrible professor of Russian History..
one of my favourite teachers at andover. great personality and he obviously loved history. one of a kind.
