This Day In History: 1936-02-11
The School Board election two of the three incumbents were reelected. James A. Glasgow and Leora Wanamaker were elected daily. Richard Keith, whose election petition had reached the registrar too late to have his name printed on the ballot lost to another write-in candidate Edward V. H. Winters. The Fardale native had served a number of years on the Board at the time when the Fardale School was being built. Local opinion said that in any contest between a Mahwah native and someone who had moved here from elsewhere, the favorite son had a great advantage. The vote was 124 to 96. Keith had lived in Mahwah since 1921.
