Sam Burack was a trolley conductor and bus driver in
New Haven. He and his wife Edith had two children, Sherman and
Kenneth. Sam was close to his father Chatzkel, living downstairs
from him his entire life.
"As a child, I remember
meeting my father while he was on his bus route, so I could bring
him his lunch. Then I would ride on the bus 'til the end of the
line, and then I would help him turn back the seats on the trolley."
