Jean Bradel, music emeritus, has been very busy with her private studio students this past theater season. Her students held lead and name roles in the productions of Broadway’s “Ragtime” and “Mary Poppins,” Fulton Theatre’s “Annie,” Ephrata Performing Arts Center’s “High School Musical II” and “Hamlet,” Sight and Sound’s “Miracle of Christmas,” OperaLancaster’s “La Boehme” and Hershey Area Playhouse’s  “The Mouse Trap.” In addition, her high school students were heard in the lead roles of their musicals: “Honk” at Catholic High, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at Eastern York High School, “No, No, Nanette” at Donegal High School, and “Annie Jr.” and “Seussical Jr” at Manheim Central Park and Recreation Commission.

Dr. Charles G. Denlinger, mathematics emeritus, recently had his 730-page textbook, Elements of Real Analysis, published.  The book is a junior/senior level mathematics major course offered by many colleges and universities.  Denlinger’s book is the culmination of his many years of experience teaching this course to hundreds of students at Millersville.  He believes it is more student-friendly than typical “Real Analysis” textbooks, yet completely rigorous and comprehensive.  It has been in continuous use at Millersville while under development over some 10 years.


Judith M. Angelo Loeb, 67, of Lancaster, died June 17.  She retired from Millersville University after 20 years as a transcript supervisor.
