Looking for information on William Betz, long time math teacher at East HS in Rochester NY.

+7 votes
Probably born around 1880.  Text book author, teacher, administrator for many years.  Born in Germany. May have married Martha Betz listed in the Modern Language Faculty at the same school and perhaps a son who played on the baseball team there.  These are very uncertain relations.  Thanks for any help
