He did teach Machine Construction (Machine Shop) He was my advisor and shop teacher class of 66

He was one of my favorite teachers. I also thought his first name was James. He used to save our butts when we used to sneak out for lunch and would ask that if we were going out to bring him back a sandwhich or other food. One of my favorite stories about him was a whole bunch of us boys were smoking in the bathroom and he was in ther with us smoking his pipe when another teacher came in to catch us he told the junior teacher " You didn't see anything" The kids that were ther befor he came in were afraid they were going to get written up for smoking just before he lit his pipe!

Because of poor attendance at the end of 10th grade  I failed Mr Sokolowski's Machine Shop. In order for me graduate in with my class in 1972, Mr Donnelly and Mr Sokolowski took me under their wings, and gave me extra assignments.  Mr Donnelly nicknamed me "Gas House."

Mr Donnelly always talked about his hometown of Altoona, PA. When I visited the Train Museum in Altoona, I did see Mr Donnelly's name on some list, or something.
