This is the final installment of our 3-part interview with Ralph Sheridan.
Part 1 of the interview is in podcast #5. Part 2 can be found in podcast #7.
This is an interview recorded in 1994 by WAVM. It was hosted by then Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Donald Kennedy.
In this podcast Ralph fields questions from the audience. He tells stories about life in Maynard at the turn of the 20th century: farms, the various uses of the fields near the current Green Meadow School, the history of the churches in Maynard, and a bit about the trains that ran through town and the businesses that sprung up around the trains.
Ralph was a friend of the legendary Babe Ruth, who lived in nearby Sudbury for a time and frequented Maynard. Ralph tells of his friendship with The Bambino and provides some insight into Ruth’s life away from baseball.
