When I retired in 1985, we moved to Princeton, and soon thereafter I joined the Blairstown board of trustees. For the following 15 years I had a firsthand view of the planning and operations at Blairstown. It was a challenging time because of the need to implement and staff a 12-month program. There were capital needs for programs and renovated facilities.
We met most of our goals drawing on the strength of our historic association with the University, which spanned two world wars and the Great Depression.
It would be tragic to break up this successful combination that recently celebrated its 100th anniversary!
