Letter: Still proud to be a Greylocker


To the editor:

I am a Philadelphia trial lawyer and a former Greylocker for 18 years. I bleed the Camp Greylock for Boys colors of red and gray, and am a regular and devoted reader of The Eagle and lover of the Berkshires. Let me place this on the record for publication, here and now: The former owners and directors of Greylock, Bert Margolis, Randy Rosenbaum and Irv Schwartz, are now turning over in their graves at the exposure of this story ("ESPN investigative report: One-time Berkshire camp counselor allegedly abused 41 men, boys," Eagle, Aug. 4).

There is no way they knew about this horrible set of events in the 1970s, and they would have taken immediate and direct corrective action if they were confronted with this issue. Under their direction, Greylock raised many outstanding boys to be outstanding citizens and lead exemplary lives.

I and many of us, who are are all close today, are proud to be called Greylockers. This disgusting and vile story does not change our thoughts about camp one bit.

Theodore Schwartz,

Upper Gwynedd, Pa.
