Former Chappaqua Teacher Harold Bischoff, 90, Dies

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – Harold "Hal" William Bischoff, a former Chappaqua resident math teacher, died July 21. He was 90.

Born Aug. 9, 1921, in Akron, Ohio, he was the son of Walter and Emma Brueggeman Bischoff. After graduating from Akron and Ohio universities, Bischoff completed a master’s degree at Ohio State University in math and science education.

He is survived by his wife, Constance; and two sons, Jon and Tim. His daughter, Nancy, predeceased him.
