Research Query: Representations of Gabbais and Shammases

Dear colleagues,

I am working with archival materials from the 1970s in which American Jews are writing about their experiences in synagogues.

I seem to have a vague awareness that there was a popular stereotype of shammases and gabbais as stern old men, always shushing the children. Or maybe this was a trope in second-generation American Jewish fiction or memoirs?

Can anyone confirm or disconfirm this? Do any books come to mind that portrayed shammases and gabbais in this way?

Thank you,
