H. Allan Lipsitz
H. Allan Lipsitz devoted his life to teaching and learning. Born in Baltimore, he was a 1959 City College graduate and earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1963. He also earned three master’s degrees from the University of Maryland and the Johns Hopkins University for studies in English, education and liberal arts.
Mr. Lipsitz taught English at Milford Mill High School for 13 years, where he was respected and beloved by hundreds of students to whom he transmitted his deep love of literature, while teaching essential writing skills and critical thinking. He cared about his students as individuals and many remember him as their mentor. The class of 1971 dedicated its yearbook to him, in appreciation of his “enthusiasm, exciting new ideas, warmth and devotion. As translator of the mysteries of the English language to both willing and unwilling students, as Coordinator of the Fine Arts Program and Humanities course, and as class and yearbook advisor, Mr. Lipsitz devoted hours of his life to the Milford community.”
He went on to work for 17 years as an academic advisor in continuing studies at Towson University, where he also started the Elderhostel program. Mr. Lipsitz then became the first director of adult education at Beth El Congregation in Baltimore, where he worked for 9 years until his death, designing award winning classes, programs and trips.
He instilled in others a love of lifelong learning that is his legacy.
