In this podcast we are pleased to present part two of our three-part interview with Ralph Sheridan, recorded in 1994.
Part one of the interview can be heard in podcast #5.
Ralph Sheridan was Maynard’s official Town Historian in the 1980’s and was a founder of the Maynard Historical Society.
The audio recording is taken from a 1994 program recorded by WAVM. Ralph was interviewed by then Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Donald Kennedy in front of a live audience in the Maynard High School Library.
In this podcast Ralph shares stories on various outdoor activities (Cricket was big back then), skating on the Mill pond (and the tale of the Mill Pond being drained), school activities and pranks, and the difficulties in finding nine kids to fill out a baseball team.
We hope to find photos mentioned in the interview and update this article to include them.
Look for the final installment of this interview in an upcoming podcast (probably podcast #9).
