Hi all.....Dudley and Sarah and Annie were all good friends of mine....I spent several summers kind of working for Mr. Main at the day camp...My folks also had some horses across the street at Sleep Hollow CC..Boy,reading all the posts on this site have really made me smile...We were all little kids together...we'd play "ghost" in Beechwood during Xmas....btw Dud owned that restaurant in Scarborough..deftly named " DUDLEY'S"..funny...but I wound up living in Beechwood...all by myself, right after Dud and Cealie moved into another house on what we used to call "the reservation"....got to tell you...as a total non-believer in Ghosts....something exists in that house that scared me and quite a few friends....I remember the may-pole ....does anyone remember how unbearably cold the pool was....marble and spring-fed....

Another famous author associated with the school (and who, like John Cheever, lived for a time on the Vanderlip's property) was Richard Yates, famous for his novels The Easter Parade and the aptly-named Revolutionary Road, soon to be a feature film.

When I was in 8th and possibly 9th grades, John Cheever's son Ben was in my class.
