Larry, you are absolutely right! The name, "Olinville" honors the memory of Bishop Steven Olin who, according to John McNamara in his "History in Asphalt", was the Bishop of the Methodist church within the incorporated townships (settlements) of Olinville 1 and 2. They were incorporated in 1852-1854 and named for Bishop Olin. Olinville Junior High School 113 "automatically" honors Bishop Stephen Olin, as does Olinville Avenue where you grew up. For that matter, I also grew up in our Olinville neighborhood with an Olinville telephone number (OLinville 5- 5097).

"JHS 113- Richard Green School" and "Olinville Junior High School 113", in my opinion, will always be interchangeable, just like "RFK Bridge" and "Triboro Bridge".

Best regards,
Sammy (also from PS 96)
