Legacy remembered


To the Editor:

I read of the passing of Father Herman Page recently in your paper. I had the honor of working with Herman on his 2009 Book “Rails Across Martha’s Vineyard: Steam Narrow Gauge and Trolley Lines,” using my historic photo collection and gaining access to other collections on the Island as well as drawing a system map of the trolleys. There was no mention of his book in the obituary, and I thought it strange, as it is likely his most lasting legacy to the Island he loved.
