Carl J. Ruff, Mathematics Educator

Carl J. Ruff was an educator for forty eight years. During most of his career, he served as the head of the Mathematics department at Sandusky High School. A graduate of Baldwin Wallace College, Mr. Ruff began teaching at Sandusky High School in 1914, first as a Commercial teacher.  (When the Commercial Department of the Ohio State Teachers Association convened at Cedar Point in June of 1917, Mr. Ruff chaired the event.) During the 1918-1919 academic year, Mr. Ruff served as acting principal of Sandusky High School.  

An article in the March 31, 1950 issue of The Sandusky Hi-Lites, a student newspaper from Sandusky High School, indicated that Carl J. Ruff had the longest service record of any Sandusky High School faculty member up to that time.

Carl J. Ruff retired from Sandusky High School in 1957. He passed away in Sandusky on December 29, 1968. He touched many students’ lives during his long career at Sandusky High School.
