In the dark and humid evening on August 20th of 1979, 18 year old student, Paul Masters was roaming the backyard of then Poughkeepsie middle-school teacher, Albert Fentress. Local teenagers were known to pester or mildly harass Albert Fentress. Fentress possessed rather odd behaviors and a strict disposition while teaching in his history class. Surprisingly, administrators at the Poughkeepsie middle-school permitted Fentress to fashion himself with Nazi military uniforms and wield a leather riding crop while teaching students WW II history in class.
