I received an email today from the daughter of Murray Forer. He was one of the people I interviewed for my book of oral histories of New Yorkers over 90,

He had very clear memories of the Depression years when on weekends in high school he worked downtown for Western Union and got nine tenths of a penny for every telegram he delivered, about $2 for a weekend of work. He served in the military during the Second War where he met his wife, a student at Virginia Tech. He was born in Trenton New Jersey April 22, 1914 and lived a good long productive life and died peacefully in the house he moved into in 1954. Up until a few years ago he went to work every day. RIP Murray
