Raymond, who never married, was a high school language teacher. He graduated from Cornish High School in 1926 and Bates College in 1930. He was Principal of Cornish High School, then taught at Norway High School and, after the Town of Norway became part of the Oxford Hills School Administrative District in the late 1960's, was head of the language department at Oxford Hills High School.
The compiler of this database was one of Raymond's students at Norway High. As youth will do, we had our favorite nickname for Raymond. We referred to him (not to his face, of course) as "Penguin" because, in our eyes, he bore a physical resemblance to the Penguin character portrayed by Burgess Meredith in the old "Batman" TV series. Now I learn that he and I were 7th cousins
