Elaine B. Nolan

Retired educator

Elaine B. Nolan, a retired educator in Baltimore public schools, died March 31 of heart failure at St. Joseph Hospital. The Park Avenue resident was 79.

Her career in city schools spanned nearly a half-century. She was a teacher, supervisor of teachers, elementary specialist and supervisor and vice principal.

"I got to know her when I began working with her on early education programs," said Alice Pinderhughes, retired superintendent of schools. "She was a very caring, dedicated and perceptive educator. There was no limit to the hours and effort that she put forth. Fortunately for the children whose lives she touched, her efforts went way beyond the call of duty."

Mrs. Nolan received the Mayor's Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Service at her retirement in 1982.

The former Elaine Butler was born and reared in West Baltimore and was a 1930 graduate of Frederick Douglass High School. In 1932, she received a teaching certificate from Coppin Normal School, now Coppin State College. She attended Hampton Institute and earned a bachelor's degree from Morgan State College in 1948. She earned a master's degree at New York University in 1950 and did graduate work in early childhood education at the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Arizona.

Services were to be held at 10:30 a.m. today at St. James Episcopal Church, Lafayette and Arlington avenues, where she had been a member since 1924.

Survivors include her husband, Prentis C. Nolan, retired coordinator of music for city schools, whom she married in 1950; a son, Dr. Prentis Nolan III of Ridgewood, N.J.; a granddaughter; and many nephews and nieces.

Memorial donations may be made to St. James Episcopal Church Building Fund, 1821 N. Arlington Ave., Baltimore 21217. Saul Schulhoff Jr., president of Scully Rubber Manufacturing Co., died Saturday of complications from cancer at his Northwest Baltimore home. He was 62.

Until a week before his death, he continued to work at the family business that was founded by his father in 1928. The company makes molded rubber plumbing products and lacrosse balls. He joined the company in 1956 and took over after the death of his father in 1964.

Known as Buz, he was reared in Mount Washington and was a 1950 graduate of City College. He earned a bachelor's degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1954 then served two years in the Army stationed in Germany.

David G. Schulhoff, a son who lives in New York City, said, "He was an extremely hard-working entrepreneur who loved life, traveling and meeting people.

"He loved to argue -- even if it was on the wrong side. He was a pragmatist who loved the absurd and was a man of strong convictions," the son said.

"He was a loyal, steady person who worked in the same business, lived in the same house, was married to the same woman and had the same friends from high school," said Ghita Levine, a longtime friend.

Memorial services were to be held at 11 a.m. today at Temple Oheb Shalom Congregation, 7310 Park Heights Ave., with interment at Baltimore Hebrew Cemetery.

Other survivors include his wife, the former Gail Goodman of Cedarhurst, N.Y., whom he married in 1961; another son, Stephen G. Schulhoff of Baltimore; and a sister, Sally S. Goldsmith of Baltimore.

Memorial donations may be made to the Accessions Fund of the Print Department of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Art Museum Drive, Baltimore 21218.
