“I’m a centenarian - the oldest living native of Rutherford, New Jersey. For many years in the past, I have been a member and contributor of the Bergen County and New Jersey Historical Societies as well as a local historian.
I met Rod Leith about a decade ago and have been fortunate to be receiving his History Chest columns regularly. The columns cover my past and my family’s past, as far back as the Rutherford incorporation.
His scholarship brings back with clarity memories of events and people that I’d long forgotten. He is a fine scholar who writes well and is very careful with facts.”
