Classmates Of Henry Miller

Throughout his writings, Henry Miller has dropped names of his former classmates in the New York school system. Some are merely ghost names from his memory, without much significance. Others, like Emil Schnellock and Tony Marella, were to become important figures in his adult life. I haven't drafted a definitive list of these names yet, but have created this post as a permanent place in which to add them as I uncover and re-discover them.

Henry Miller attended the following New York City schools: Presbyterian Sunday School (Williamsburg? 1896? - ?), kindergarten at Fillmore Place (1986?-?), Public School [P.S.] 85 (1900-1905), Eastern District High School (1905-1909), City College (1909).

Some of the names noted by Miller are found on this list of 1909 graduates from Eastern District. See a photo of Miller and his class of 1905 at PS 85 here, or Miller and his graduating class in 1909 at Eastern District here.

For references to "Nexus, pg. 7," see this posting.
