Here are most of the schools which were attended by Jack Marvin.


  • Johns Hopkins University

    Johns Hopkins University

    Alright, I never attended Johns Hopkins University but I was part of a multi-year study they did on school children across the country. The "Project for the Study of Academic Precocity" was a program to determine at an early age who the children were with the aptitude to excel.
  • Sunburst Elementary School

    Sunburst Elementary School

    My parents bought a new house and we moved a few miles across town. As a new student, one teacher in particular paid specific attention to me. She encouraged me to reach beyond my comfort area and explore my art and ideas.
  • Cholla Elementary School

    Cholla Elementary School

    During the next four years I started a model rocket club, was always anchor in tug-o-war, and eared a large stack of red ribbons in science and sports. My passion was science fiction. I read the entire section from the little library and eventually had to take the bus to a larger library.
  • Lakeview Elementary School

    Lakeview Elementary School

    When I showed-up to Lakeview Elementary School a few months after school had started, they didn't know what to do with me. I had already started that year in second grade and they didn't want to "flunk" me.
  • Arcata Christian School

    Arcata Christian School

    This was a small private school in the redwood forests of Northern California. Our family moved to that area as part of a religious movement (with ties to Jonestown). It was a great place to live as a kid. Anyway, I got caught doing my older brother's homework.
  • Grace Christian Academy

    Grace Christian Academy

    When I was five years old I started school in pre-kindergarten at the Grace Christian Academy. The principal, Dr. Somebody, had a wooden paddle in a box named "The Coffin." It had batteries, wires, and switches connected to it. Rumors were told about "the electric paddle."

Little Known Stories

Proverbs often contradict one another, as any reader soon discovers. The sagacity that advises us to look before we leap promptly warns us that if we hesitate we are lost; that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but out of sight, out of mind. ~Leo Rosten
