I believe this is the Dr. Sidney Rosenthal who taught me Freshman English at Boston State College. He introduced us to the New York Times Newspaper Editorial page. We would have to buy the paper and then prepare comments on one of the opinions. (Who knew there was even an Op Ed page?)
He left his mark on many a student I'm sure as he did me. Sorry we didn't have his jazz incorporated into English 101.
Very Sorry for your loss.
