George Graziano, Jesuit Professor of English



I have to apologize for reporting the death of another Sophia University
Professor, Fr. George Graziano, S.J., who passed away around 7:30 P.M.
today (Ash Wednesday, March 9, 2011).

I don't think George was
ever hospitalized during his long life except for the final three
months. His hospitalization, towards the end of last year, proved to be
not only the first, but also the last. When he reluctantly left for a
checkup, he was looking forward to returning within a short time, but
his situation deteriorated gradually and turned critical after a couple
of falls in January.

George was born on February 2, 1930, entered
the New York Province of the Society of Jesus on August 14, 1947, and
was ordained a priest on June 20, 1959. He had been in Japan since
1955, mostly teaching English at Sophia University until his retirement
around 2000.

With a degree in Applied Linguistics, George taught
mostly oral English, presentation skills, and writing. George was a
pioneer in introducing media-based English courses at Sophia, and,
according to various accounts, he even had a bus with audio-visual
gadgets in the 1960s and 70s. Although he belonged to the Department of
English, for many years he taught in the Faculty of Law, grooming many
generations of youngsters. He was a dedicated and committed teacher,
willingly giving his time to students, helping them improve their oral
and written English. His office door was always open, and there were
always students there, often learning English while watching a movie or a
Columbo episode. He kept in touch with students even after their
graduation, and he officiated at the marriage of many of them.

George
was much interested in audio-visual machines and computers. He had a
substantial collection of audio and video tapes for teaching English,
some of which he himself edited or compiled. His favorite teaching tool
was the Columbo TV series, many episodes of
which he knew almost by heart. He was one of the earliest users of a
computer at Sophia, especially from a non-Science Faculty, going back to
the days of punch cards. After the arrival of PCs, he used almost
every version of Windows until Windows Vista. He was competent in
handling the programming language BASIC and wrote several programs for
use in class. In fact, after his retirement from Sophia, he volunteered
to work in Myanmar, and there too he employed his personally developed
CALL system, which consisted of a set of lessons with Columbo episodes
and custom-made dialogs and questions, all controled by his own software
program.

George had the knack of attracting people and was
often surrounded by former students who came from different walks of
life. One of the reasons for his popularity might have been his
membership in a yachting club, to which he belonged for many years.
Almost every year, he attended numerous functions associated with the
club and was regular in giving opening or closing speeches. He was also
a 'socialite' being very generous in treating friends, sometimes even
cooking for them. George was a very talented cook and had very clear
notions about the quality of food and the manner of serving and eating.
Perhaps he came from a family of restaurateurs, educated since a very
young age in food vocabulary and food criticism. He often made bread,
pizza, and other dishes in his office and ate with others.

George
was a memorable character. Perhaps no student is likely to forget
George's sonorous voice and impressive appearance. Most notable were
his hair, which he laboriously wound around to cover his bald pate, and
his pants, all of which were ultra-tight. Of course, he was always
dandy, paying close attention to the colors of his clothes, the design
of his tie, and the choice of his jacket. Perhaps more than his voice
and appearance, what made him memorable was his vocation-inspired
sociability and generosity, as he always strove to be available and
generous to others. R. I. P.
