Foresights and Hindsights From Harry

In May 2015, a year after longtime Montgomery County resident Harry Zubkoff passed away, daughter Elaine Blackman relaunched the blog her dad began at age 88. She posts newfound essays, musings, historical notes, and excerpts from published and unpublished stories, novels, and poems, all mined from his computer and voluminous paper files. As a Jewish veteran, pilot, and writer, Harry reflected on life in Buffalo, WWII, Greenbelt (MD), DC, the Pentagon, music, Israel, and journalism. Harry’s inspiring tales impart lessons for all generations. Elaine hopes they also will encourage writers to keep writing, and help her honor a promise made in her dad’s last moments to stay in touch with their relatives and family of friends.
