January 19, 2017: For those of you who could not make the program in January on the Earle family, I have put up a simple page with some links of interest – the 1937 Time Magazine article on the Governor; a 1931 aerial photo showing the Earle property with the lake in the distance, and the edited home movie with about 5 minutes of film of the 1935 inaugural parade for the Governor. The video link will take you to our YouTube page. Here is the Earle page with those links: http://www.historicnewtownsquare.org/…/people-the-earle-fa…/
