600 page manuscript with pictures and lithographs plagiarized, twelve years of research and writing, then the Curator said I was crazy and “never wrote anything down” “on medication” etc. while he sold it all and gave it all away.

Scott, just read your comment. If your still out there, my father was a good friend of your Granpa. I knew Georege and watched him direct traffic in the middle of Washington Street in the middle of winter. Punishment for being a rebel. Ddid you know your grandpa?

Hi Robert! I had checked back on this site several times and never saw a response so it was great to see your post. Yes I knew my Grandfather. We moved in with him and my Grandmother in Waldwick when I was very young. He passed away in the late 80’s and I have lived in Southern California since 1983. I would love to hear any stories about my Grandfather that you could share thank you Scott[quote comment=”175510″]Scott, just read your comment.
