In our latest installment of our monthly series One Hundred Years of Stories, Neenah Ellis talks with college professor Abraham Goldsteen who's 101 years old. Goldsteen has taught law for 70 years. He currently teaches at Baruch College in New York City. He began working as a child, 1913 to be exact, when he served as a telegram delivery boy. Goldsteen says he never married because he was afraid the expense of a family would make it hard for him to help care for his brothers and sisters.
