“…my earliest memories are of growing up in the village of Woolrich where my father walked to work and most of my friends’ parents worked in the mill.   My cousin John William Rich and I used to sneak into the wool shed where huge 500-pound bales of wool were stored, and we would jump from one stack to another.   It was hard for the watchman to catch us since we knew every possible escape route across the roof of the mill…”
