Rockland County lost another great one as Bert Dahm passed away last week. I had just received a letter from him encouraging support for Heritage of West Nyack and their work with the Vanderbilt Onderdonk Traphagen property, so he was working tirelessly for historic preservation right until the end of his life. He sat down for an interview with us back in 2014 and we're so glad that we have his memories to share with the community of growing up in West Nyack, how the Clarkstown Central School district emerged from a collection of small schoolhouses, the story of Rockland's vanished airports and much more.

We were sad to hear of the passing of Harry Waitzman this week, a long-time resident of Rockland County. It was about a year ago that he sat down with us and told us some stories from the old days about going to school in the English Church in New Hempstead, his father's fish store in Spring Valley, the War and the origins of important Jewish institutions in New City. He was one of our best patrons, always curious and wanting to learn more, attending computer classes up until the last year of his life - a true life-long learner. We'll miss you Harry. Thanks for sharing your memories.
