Dr. Gabe’s

Ask any student what Dr. Gabe was like for a teacher

and instead of a simple one or two word response, you’ll

get a story. Whether extolling the quiet radicalism of

Gregor Mendel’s work or throwing erasers at windows,

teasing students that he’d cancel class if the window

broke, Dr. Edward Gabriel was never pedantic.

To pay tribute to his innovative and caring teaching

style, LC Magazine asked students and colleagues

to share their unedited insights on Facebook and

Instagram. These are only a handful of the many stories

and thank yous shared on Lycoming’s social media sites.

Check them out for more laughs and inspiration.

Kayla Johnson ’10:

How many

professors do you know that

give out cans of peas for correct

answers in class? If it wasn’t that

it was whatever he had in his

pocket to offer. He engaged his

students in a way unmatched by

anyone. Thank you for everything

Dr. Gabe! You will be missed

David Fisher, professor at

Lycoming College:

Dr. Gabe has

become an institution within the

Institution!

Douglas Ellmore Sr., parent

of a student:

He inspired my

daughter to minor in bio with

her psychology BS. Now she is

pursuing a master’s … She always

speaks of how Dr. Gabe made

Lycoming even more special.

Meredith Murray ’92:

He wanted

my friend and I to succeed so

badly that he showed up in our

dorm and rode my bike in the

halls to help us study.
