Lubway, who was known to many in the Hyde Park community as a regular performer in the Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company, began teaching at the Laboratory Schools in 1953. He taught third through seventh grades at various times over the years, and he was the first principal of the Middle School, from 1963 to 1966. He took a leave of absence from the Laboratory Schools in 1966-67 to teach sixth grade at the American School of Warsaw, Poland. He retired in 1990.
Lubway was also host of the WMAQ-TV series "Read Me a Story" in the mid-1960s.
Contributions in his memory may be made to the Ray Lubway Fund at the Laboratory Schools.
