RE: Skinner Family
I will have to get American Phoenix, I live in northern New Jersey a few minutes from Paterson. Until WW2 Paterson was an industrial powerhouse, and the silk production capitol in America. After WW2 the city declined, and many towns became bedroom communities of NYC. Many people have no idea we use to actually make stuff here, most of it really good stuff. Maybe Paterson should have a statue William Skinner, or at least a plaque.

Skinner Family
I recently listened to an interview of the author who wrote American Phoenix, about William Skinner and the birth of the American silk industry. I mentioned the story to my mother who is a Massachusetts native. To my surprise she remembered the Skinner family, not from Massachusetts, but from Fishers Island, NY off the coast of New London Connecticut. My mother lived there in the early 1950s. I have not read the book, but it sounds inspiring, the type of story America could use about now. Good Luck JH
