The late Edwin A. Barnes' portrait was recently found in a trash bin at
person who eventually ended up with it had it matted and framed and
to know if anyone out there knew anything about this man who spent the
part of his life as Chairman of the Science Department at
FRHS. Did he
have family? If so, we would like to get the portrait back to
If all efforts fail to return the portrait to its rightful owner, we
will donate it to
The Rockaway Museum, which is asking for anything from FRHS' past for
Far Rockaway High School Revisited exhibit.
Please get in touch with either me
(Carol) or Skip and give us
any information you might
have about Edwin Barnes.
Barnes taught physics at Far Rockaway High School. I had him as a
1944 for physics and also as a home room teacher. He lived on
Seneca Street, now Beach
12th Street. If my memory serves me correctly he had two
sons. Don't remember their names.
I realize that this info may not help in placing his portrait but it
might lead to something else.
It is a shame that some one would just throw his picture away.
