About Me:- Tell us about yourself
I lived in Milltown between 1974-1978 while I went to Rutgers Univ. As a child was a communicant at OLOL Church on Main Street.
What is your interest in Milltown history?
I wrote my doctoral dissertation (University of Chicago) on Milltown. Received my degree in 1985. Worked in Advertising in NYC from 1985-1998. That dissertation was the inspiration for the Kentucky Fried chicken fictional town of Lake Edna for their ad campaigns of 1990-1995.

Your story is fascinating! I have a brother named Jack Wright, but I really don't think we are related, even though we lived right down the street from OLOL. I think my brother might have had your mom for a teacher... or someone in my family, anyway. my four siblings all went to OLOL.

I would love to read your dissertation, if it is published online, or otherwise available.

Regards,

Barbara Wright
