Interview with Catherine Ellis Currier
Catherine Ellis Currier was born in 1926. She grew up with her family of five siblings in Jarvesville in her family’s home on 30 Church St. She tells wonderful stories of her memories growing up in Sandwich in a quieter, less hurried time than we live in today – going to Boston by train; playing basketball at Sandwich High School; blueberry picking on Town Neck; dancing at the USO on Jarves St. during World War Two; and more. This video was produced by Rob Vinciguerra.
Interview with Margaret "Muzzie" Alvezi Richter
This is an original audio tape from 2004 featuring Carolyn Crowell interviewing Margaret “Muzzie” Alvezi Richter. We thank Sandwich Community TV for their technical expertise in making this into a video tape by inserting pictures given us from the Alvezi Family and our Town Archives.
Interview with Augusta Josephine Canary Hoey
This audio, recorded in 1977, has been transformed by SCTV into a video with inserted photos found in our Archives. The video features Sandwich native Augusta Hoey being interviewed by Ernestine Gray of Tales of Cape Cod, an organization dedicated to preserving history through interviews with “old time Cape Codders”.
Howard "Fizzy" Crowell*
Sandwich lost a beloved citizen this past February of 2021. Howard P. Crowell, 96, was born and lived his whole life on Crow Farm, which he ran for over 65 years. We are very lucky to have had the chance to talk to Howard months before his passing about his life and memories of Sandwich. Watch as Bill Daley interviews Howard in three parts
And thanks to SCTV!
