Thursday, August 22 — 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Presenter: John Conway, Sullivan County Historian 

“Loch Sheldrake, or Sheldrake Pond, as it was known before many of the ponds in Sullivan County became lakes overnight as part of the late 19th century tourism boom, is one of the deepest bodies of water in the region.
It was a favorite dumping ground for Murder, Inc. when the enforcement arm of organized crime plied its trade in the mountains, and it is believed that at least one of the bodies deposited there has never been found.”

So begins one of John Conway’s many grizzly tales as he tells about a number of prominent gangsters in the 1930’s & 40’s who came to Sullivan County for murder and mayhem.  Always an engaging speaker, Mamakating Library welcomes John Conway’s return!
