Word has been received here of the passing of Dr. Richard Langworthy Burdick in Skaneateles, NY, on July 29, 2000.
Richard was chairman of the Department of Education at Carroll College, Waukesha, WI, for 23 years. He came back to Almond after his retirement, where he lived at 73 Main Street. Serving the Town of Almond as Historian for many years, four of his articles are published in the History of Alfred. In one of his writings, Richard once wrote: "The Keeper of Memories recalls the pleasant and best. Why doubt the present or fear the future? Soon they will also be the past."
