In scanning the Spring edition of Deerfield Magazine, what to my surprise did I read but a review of David Mather’s new book, Crescent Beach. Surprised because I spend most of my summer at Crescent Beach, although not the one in Florida. No, my home is at Crescent Beach, Fort Erie, Ontario, in a house built by my late wife’s grandfather in 1904. At one point, we even tried to gift it to Deerfield, but the Academy was unable to figure out how to accept property located in a foreign country. If any of my smart classmates know how this transfer could be arranged, I’d love to hear from you.
