    When Jerry Schaller was a junior at Quincy High School in the early 1960s, it occurred to him he would have to find a job after graduation -- and he didn't know what he wanted to do. Then one day, as an assignment for Ron Rush's business class at QHS, Schaller wrote a paper about the barber profession. It was based on an interview he conducted with his own barber, John Cunningham. Schaller had a sudden realization: He could become a barber himself.
