1914: The Copes of Bromley
I went to school with all kinds of "Copes." Richard, who went on to be a Hamilton Fire Co. legend, was in my class of '51. Another Richard Cope, whom we dubbed "Dick,"(in order not to confuse the two Richards), was also in my class of '51, and indeed, he dated my dear wife of 55 years, Judy Britton while we were in Kuser Annex. Then there was Edward Cope, also an HHS '51 classmate, and his "little brother" Alan Cope who was also part of my high school years. Did I confuse you? Join the club! Believe me, it was very difficult to cope with all the Copes!
