Your article about skating on Lake Carnegie reminded me of my grandfather, Charles Chauncey Savage, Princeton Class of 1873, who lived in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania. He once took the train from Philadelphia to Princeton, got off, walked down to the Raritan Canal, and ice skated back to Philadelphia. This story was told to me by my mother, Marion Eyre Heyniger, who was married to my father, Charles Lambert “Lamb” Heyniger 1916. My father was a very large, tall man who used to lead the alumni in singing our alma mater song at Reunions every year.
