Likely it was Brother Ralph Darmento. Had him for computer programming in high school, a catholic high school.
Two of us in the class had our own computers in had the TRS-80 model 1 level 2, and he had an OSI Challenger II. The TRS-80 was based on the Zilog Z80 cpu, the OSI machine was 6502 cpu based.
Brother Ralph used to call us Doctor and our last names. In fact it was Brother Ralph whom I taught you could create a BASIC program without separate lines. It could all be put on one continuous line with the : symbol to delineate different statements.
Is our it any wonder why i majored in information science and by profession I’m i.t. and information security or infoSec.

I suppose it was my English literature teacher Mr. Harchick, for I still am reading books and going to theatre.
Oh yeah on books. Of course most of mine are digital now.
