Photo, Print, Drawing [Portrait of Julius Grossman, ca. July 1947] These pictures show Metropolitan Vocational High students at work in a school where pop music is treated on the same plane as classical music. One of the two high schools in New York with a big music department, it is probably one of the very few public schools in the country that prepares boys and girls to be working musicians. The first picture shows the long-hair group in the classroom; the center photo caught them being given the inescapable quiz; the last shot is of the swing band class. Note the pictures of Toscanini and Harry James in juxtaposition. The teachers shown are Julius Grossman, longhair group; Arthur Aaron, quiz class, and Irving Lasch, jazz group
