April 19, 1999
Robert G. Provins, Sr, a popular English and psychology teacher at Washington High School for over 30 years, died Monday evening at his home in Wilton Manors, Florida.

Robert was born in Washington, Pa. in 1924 to Jake and Dorothy Provins, and graduated from Washington High School in 1942. He was awarded a 4-year scholarship from Washington and Jefferson (W&J) College and attended briefly before enlisting in the Army, where he was assigned to the Machine Gun Squadron for the 94th Division. He resumed his studies at W&J after the war and after graduation had a brief stint as a race car driver and a jazz musician before deciding on a teaching career. He taught English and later psychology, after receiving a Masters Degree from West Virginia University in 1967. His teaching methods were effective and innovative and the lessons he taught are still remembered by many of his former students. One of his most innovative techniques was the use of the "anonymous number" to grade students. Each student selected a number which was used to identify all paperwork that was to be graded. A new number was selected for each paper. Provins never knew the identity of the students until the grade was issued, allowing the student to know that the grade was based strictly on the work performed and not any bias related to personality or preferences. He also introduced students to the "Skinner Box", which dramatically illustrated to them the principals of conditioning.

He was married in 1953 to Beatrice Woodward who remained his beloved wife until her death in 1992. Mrs. Provins, who was affectionately know as "Woody" to her students taught girls physical education at Washington High School for over 30 years.

Provins was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma in 1993 and was being cared for by Dr. J.D. Temple at the University of Miami's Sylvester Cancer Center. He traveled to Florida frequently between 1993 and 1997, when he and his son sold their home at 311 Allison Avenue and moved to Florida permanently. Their former home, listed as a National Historic Landmark, has been restored and is used as law offices for the firm of Elaine Rizza.

If you need any additional information, you can reach me at husserl@ix.netcom.com or at 954-565-8458. Bob and I were domestic partners for the last years of his life.

Howard Leroy Bennaman
I've often thought about my Dad since he passed away at the age of 83 in Dec.1994.
Tonite, I remembered how proud he was of his service to his country, andespecially his service in the 94th Infantry. As he often tried to keep in touch with his fellow soldiers after WWII, I know he'd want others to know of his life afterward, and his passing. I apologize for the lateness of 4 years, but found this site accidentally.
My dad, Howard Leroy Bennaman, was a lifelong resident of Baltimore, MD. He entered the Army at age 32, and served with the 94th Infantry, Company "M", 3rd Batallion. He told me that he was part of the D-Day Invasion at Utah Beach, and saw service in France, Holland, Germany, Belgium, Austria and Czechlosvakia.
While on patrol in Nov.1944, he got captured by wounded German soldiers. They surrended to him in order to get aid and he rejoined his company 5 hours later.
He was awarded 4 battle stars and the Combat Infantryman's Badge. While in Czechlosvakia for 3 weeks in 1945, he met and fell in love with my mom, a young German war refugee. Though marriage to Germans was discouraged by the Army, my dad was persistent. After the war, he asked the Red Cross to find her in Europe.
They found her in Bavaria 2 years later. She accepted his proposal. They married in 1947 and had 3 sons and 4 grandchildren.
Dad found work after the war as a steelworker for Bethlehem Steel where he retired.
Music was his favorite interest, and he played the piano until his death. He kept himself active with the VFW, Star Spangled Post serving as chaplain and also the American Legion.
John A. Ryan, Sr.
A comrade of the 94th Infantry Division, John A. Ryan, Sr. of Memphis, TN, passed away October 31, 1997. I was going through some things of his and found the publication of The 94 ATTACK. I saw the TAPS announcement then searched the Internet for this site and felt his comrades should know of his passing. We, his children miss him greatly but are thankful he did not suffer long.
