This Day In History: 1950-03-02
In a letter to the Ramsey Journal Henry O. Havemeyer and Horace S. Ritter campaigned vigorously for the defeat of the proposed bond is set to finance a new central elementary school on Ridge Road. They maintained that the 4 existing schools, George Washington, Betsy Ross, the… and Commodore Perry were quite adequate. If parents wanted “marble halls” they should send their children to private schools and spare the public the expense of the high initial cost and the high transportation costs of the School Board’s proposal. Mahwah’s education, they maintained was neither “Model T” nor “Bargain Basement.” as some supporters had claimed.
