The VCTC is named in honor of Colonel Robert N. Abbott who served in WWII and Korea. Colonel Abbott was a POW during the Korean Conflict enduring 33 months in captivity. Upon Colonel Abbott’s return to Rochester, he became the Civil Defense Director for Monroe County. In July of 1964, Director Abbott was flying in a helicopter to survey the race riots that were going on in Rochester when the helicopter crashed. Director Abbott survived the crash but succumbed to his injuries on August 25, 1964.
