  1. K., M. T. (Kane, Martin T.) Souvenir history of the Police Department – Stamford, Connecticut – from 1894 to 1917. (Stamford, Connecticut); 1917; (72) pp., paper covers, ports., illus., advts., 26 cm. 
Notes: The foreword on p. (3) is signed M. T. K. I believe the author of this work to be Martin T. Kane. In 1917 he was a reporter for the Stamford Advocate. His obituary in the Stamford Advocate, July 19, 1944 states: “Mr. Kane was born in Stamford, Dec. 28, 1878, a son of Martin and Catherine McInerney Kane. He was educated in the Stamford public schools and graduated from Stamford High School, Class of 1896. He then entered Yale University and at the end of two years returned to Stamford where he was employed on the Stamford Telegram staff as a hand compositor and later as a reporter. Joining The Stamford Advocate in 1900, Mr. Kane covered various assignments for the newspaper and for several years served as sports editor before being named city editor. Upon the death of Paul Lockwood, managing editor, in November, 1934, Mr. Kane was elevated to the post of managing editor, in which he served until his retirement on Dec. 11, 1943.” R.

Abstract: “Foreword – In the publication of this history in behalf of the police department, the editor has endeavored to present some of the more important facts disclosed in research to the records of the Common Council and of the department. It has not been the object to make this little book the register of the follies and misfortunes of those with whom it deals, and care has been taken, without doing violence to historical truth, to set forth the good rather than the bad. As a matter of fact, there is, and has been, little to censure in the police department of Stamford. It is the honest opinion of the editor, who has had close relations with the department for a score of years, that, in point of efficiency and the general character of personnel, the Stamford police department ranks second to none. Chief of Police William H. Brennan possesses in large measure the qualities that go to make the ideal executive, and it is believed to be due largely to the capable manner in which he discharges his duties that the department ranks so high today. Every member of the department is worthy of respect and encouragement. There are no laggards, no cheats and no cowards among this band of men who, day and night, risk life and limb in the performance of their duty. The thanks of the department are very cordially extended to the business men and to others who assisted to make this book a financial success, also to Henry J. Flick for the pictures herein reproduced. April 9, 1917. M. T. K.   ….   Stamford may well be proud of its police organization. In these days of unrest and stress, it is comforting to know that this branch of the municipal government is so excellent. It is the purpose of this book briefly to record the progress and improvement in the system since it was organized.” M.T.K. (Martin T. Kane), pp. (3), (9).

Through the medium of photography, this exhibit afforded one an opportunity of examining a final view of interior and exterior images of the Yale & Towne Manufacturing Company’s 21 acre complex. By 1900 a significant number of Stamford’s work force were employed here producing locks, keys, builders’ hardware and related products. Eventually however, the company shut down its operations in Stamford’s South End and sold the property. The majority of the 15 photographers participating in this show, rented loft space in this set of buildings at some time in their careers, while others visited it and were intrigued at what they observed.

Abstract: “The entire line [of the New York & New Haven railroad] was opened in January 1849, although full freight service was not provided until several years later.

The original line was hastily built, and as traffic increased, it was continually reconstructed. The NY&NH opened as a single track road throughout. A second track was installed in 1854. The NY&NH became the funnel through which nearly all New York-bound traffic out of New England eventually passed. Other lines came under its sway: the New Haven & Northampton was leased in 1848, even before the NY&NH was completed. In 1870 its operations were coordinated with its long-time link to Boston, the Hartford & New Haven. Two years later the two merged to form the New York, New Haven & Hartford, the nucleus of southern New England’s greatest rail system.

In 1866, an independent line, the New Canaan RR, was chartered, and in July 1868, it was opened from Stamford on the NY&NH, eight miles to New Canaan. This short line went bankrupt in 1879 and was reorganized in May 1883 as the Stamford & New Canaan RR. The NYNH&H leased it six months later, and it has been operated ever since as a branch of the NY&NH.” Ronald Dale Karr, p. 47. (Copyright 1995 by Ronald Dale Karr. Reproduced with permission.)

Abstract: “The twentieth annual convention was held at Town Hall, Stamford, Tuesday, August 27, 1889, and was called to order by President James P. Bree. A noticeable feature of this convention was the presence of four lady delegates representing the ladies’ societies of Rockville and Stamford, and although under the constitution they were not entitled to seats in the convention they were seated without opposition and at the proper time the constitution was amended by striking out the section which excluded women from conventions.” Thomas H.

Abstract: “Noel deCaprio passed away on December 11, 1998, after a prolonged, 17-year battle with cancer. She survived 14 years past her doctors’ initial prognosis. Noel’s story is one of an ambitious woman whose love of the beauty business and battle with cancer resulted in her leading the industry to the next level – from hair salons to day spas. With the creation of the Noel Foundation and the b.well facility – organizations created to help cancer survivors enhance their appearance by offering advice on makeup, skin care, hair and clothing – Noel’s enterprises truly became centers for beauty and wellness. 
Even in death, Noel’s spirit continues. As Peter continues his story, I am struck by how alive Noel seems, even though she’s been gone for more than two years. He speaks of his wife in the present tense and maintains that her spirit is always with him. “I see evidence of her when she’s not here,” he says.

Peter has continued Noel’s mission to help cancer survivors. Recently, he recalled his love story with Noel through words and photographs in a book, titled Remembering Noel, which he coauthored with Carolyn Temple. Together, the sale of the book, Noel’s taped interview with [Adam] Broderick and a CD of her favorite songs have raised $100,000 for the nonprofit Noel Foundation. All monies raised by the foundation are given to cancer survivors and their families.

As we conclude our interview, Peter leans forward and says of the spa: “We’re on a whole other plane. There’s something magical about our place.”

Broderick concurs: “I think about her often. It’s weird. Her business is alive, so in a sense, she’s alive. She made every person she met feel that he or she was her best friend, even if she had only a five-minute conversation with them. When someone has that kind of profound impact on you, they’re never gone. There aren’t many people who walk the earth who have that ability to touch you.”   Vivian Kelly, pp. 56, 57, 61.   (Copyright 2001 by Living In Stamford. Reproduced with permission.)

Abstract: “Once upon a more genteel time, before television and air conditioning lured us all indoors, elaborate front and side porches were the center of warm weather social activity. Sadly, many of Stamford’s most graceful porches didn’t make it to the millennium. But, as the three local homes featured here illustrate, porches are in vogue again. 
Porch culture suffered its first serious blow when people started going inside instead of out to escape the heat, thanks to Willis Haviland Carrier, who invented air conditioning in 1902. Guglielmo Marconi’s invention of the radio dealt another blow, followed by the wide scale broadcast of television by NBC and CBS in the early 1940’s, and finally in 1953, with the advent of color television.

As people congregated indoors, many of the old porches were torn down. [Renee] Kahn says a movement began in the 40’s to do away with Stamford’s porches. Homeowners either removed the porches because they were a problem to maintain, or sacrificed them, turning them into an enclosed area that functioned as additional indoor living space.”     Vivian Kelly, pp. 51, 54.   (Copyright 2002 by Living In Stamford.

Abstract: “When the Twentieth Century Pilgrim Program was launched last November, we asked our Bicentennial Committees to nominate persons in their communities who were naturalized citizens and who, by their lives, had given something back to their chosen country. Given something beyond material goods. The something we were looking for was ‘themselves.’
As we read the biographies of those nominated, we realized how difficult it must have been for those Committees to make their choices, for most of our Pilgrims came to this land through efforts which reflect strong courage, sacrifice and self-denial. They came, many of them, literally penniless, but with an undeniable determination to achieve a destiny for themselves that they could not achieve elsewhere.   ………….
Here today we honor ninety-six individuals, diverse in their backgrounds, their lives, their human individuality. Yet with a commonality that earns them the right to share equally with each other a unique honor. They have given back to their adopted land on a grand scale something of themselves. Their gifts have been their abilities, their talents, their knowledge. They have given, many of them, beyond themselves for they have given a portion of their very immortality through their children. ………….. 
Today’s celebration, our celebration of people, is a celebration of that America which is the result of two centuries bought with the courage and determination of a vigorous and varied people – a people of immigrants.” Whitney L. Brooks, Vice-Chairman, American Revolution Bicentennial Commission of Connecticut. June 25, 1976.

Matthews (p. 17) states, “Travel diary, October 1704-January 1705: journey from Boston to New York and back; remarkable for its lively descriptions, character sketches, conversation pieces, sharp-tongued wit, romanticism, and literariness; one of the best feminine diaries extant.”
Abstract: Friday, December 22, 1704, “Here we took leave of New York government and descending the mountainous passage that almost broke my heart in ascending before, we came to Stamford, a well compact town, but miserable meeting house, which we passed, and through many and great difficulties, as bridges which were exceeding high and very tottering and of vast length, steep and rocky hills and precipices (bug-bears to a fearful female traveler). ……   The government of Connecticut colony begins westward towards York at Stamford (as I am told) and so runs eastward towards Boston (I mean in my range, because I don’t intend to extend my description beyond my own travels) and ends that way at Stonington. And had a great many large towns lying more northerly. It is a plentiful country for provisions of all sorts and it’s generally healthy.” Sarah Kemble Knight, pp. 60, 64, New York, 1825 edition.

This study was originally produced by Samuel Koenig, administrator of the Connecticut Ethnic Survey, for Work Projects Administration, Federal Writers Project for the State of Connecticut.   It remained unpublished until 1991.                                     “Thus while the Jews undoubtedly constitute a unit in the city’s population, they also form an integral part of the society within which they live. They participate actively in every phase of the town’s life. They think, act, and behave as their neighbors. Like any other immigrant group, they share in the cultural heritage of their ancestors, but this heritage is constantly acquiring new meanings and undergoing modifications and changes that bring it into harmony with the American environment. Their social life is still largely confined to intra-group relationships, but, as we have seen, it differs little from what is commonly called the American pattern.” Samuel Koenig, p. 146.
