WOMAN’S CLUB OF MORRISTOWN PRESENTS ORPHAN TRAIN SPEAKER

Author Tom Riley will discuss the Orphan Train movement at the Woman's Club of Morristown on Tuesday, October 18.  So-called “orphan trains” relocated some 273,000 “surrendered” children from New York City to homes across the United States between 1850 and 1929.  The talk, which begins at noon, is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested.  Please call 973-539-0467 by October 13 to reserve a place.  Light refreshments will be served after the talk.  The Woman's Club is at 51 South Street in Morristown.

Mr. Riley calls the Orphan Train movement "the greatest American story never told."  Founders of this movement believed that salvation for children whose parents could not care for them was to be found in America's heartland.  This was true for at least some of the children.  He shares the story of two boys, sent on the same train to Indiana, who later became the governors of Alaska and North Dakota.

Mr. Riley was one of 12 children in a Harlem family that disintegrated by the time he was seven years old.  He and several siblings were eventually sent to Happy Valley School in Pomona, NY.  He discovered boxes of orphan train information while researching his own past.  Now retired from the US Postal Service, he resides with his wife in New City, New York.     Donate
