Our warmest "Thank
you" to Mr. Bob Kidd for donating an early map of
Jacob T. Walden's lands. The map believed to be a
copy is of Walden dated 1821. It is about 28 "wide
and 39" high and is of the proposed mill sites
along the east side of the Wallkill River.,
reported by Marcus Millspaugh. (May
you to former Waldenites, Donald J. Bennett and
wife Dee of Rochester, NY, and Richard Bennett and
wife Lorraine of Gardiner, NY, for donating these
beautiful Walden High School Sports Letters--ALL
earned by their father Harold "Ben" Bennett. Ben
earned his first sports letter in football in 1930,
but after being forced to drop out of football
because of a sports injury, he went on to earn more
in Baseball, Soccer, Tennis, Track & Field in
1932-33, graduating in 1933. Don says he believes
the number was unprecedented at Walden High
you Charlene Doolittle Wynkoop...
for donating this lovely post card of the Villa Victoria
(Delmonico's) in Walden.
of Villa Victoria came from the memorabilia I received from
my sister, Christine Doolittle Keigmich, upon her death. She
kept [several of the same card] them in her
possession for many years. She never shared with me why she
kept them, but I know she was familiar with the villa and
the Delmonico family.
