Born Feb 27 1941.1  

He married Laura Jean Chovanec1 [Laura Jean Chovanex3], Dec - 19681, Broward County, Florida1.  Laura was born Aug 25 1945.1  

Marvin and Laura were both school teachers.  Marvin taught math and computer science at the high school level, and Laura taught computer courses at an elementary school.1  Laura also was a freelance photographer, working for a stock photo agency in Ft. Lauderdale.  She had many photos printed in magazines and textbooks, and one photo was sold to a company which printed and framed the photo as art, with "HINSHAW" printed below the photo (see photo below).1  

The following email was sent by Mike Arnett, one of Marvin's former students:4

Beginning in 1973 (I believe), at Nova Middle School/High School, Marvin Hinshaw oversaw an experimental advanced math program called Elements of Mathematics, which combined advanced math and formal logic.  A very high percentage of the students who participated in the EM Math program, which ran from 6th grade through 12th grade, eventually became very successful in their endeavors post high school.  Many of those students attribute much of their success to Mr. Hinshaw and the EM Math program.  I know this because I am one of those students.  Whenever I come in contact with former classmates who participated in EM Math, Mr. Hinshaw is the most common topic of conversation.  In fact, this email is as a result of an email sent to me from Seattle, WA yesterday from an EMer.  [...].  I think the love and admiration we have for Mr. Hinshaw is a result of his dedication, integrity, demeanor, and yes, sense of humor.  Thanks, Mr. Hinshaw.

Marvin and Laura currently (2004) are retired and reside in Lighthouse Point, Florida.1
