About Me:- Tell us about yourself
I am a second-generation American (a copy editor/poet/writer) whose family on my father's side comes from France, his father from the High Pyrenees, his mother from the Low Pyrenees (the Basque Country). They met and married in Argentina, then made their way to Havanna, New Orleans, and finally Milltown in 1917 to work in the Michelin plant. A year later the rest of the family from the Basque Country joined them in Milltown.

What is your interest in Milltown history?
To my own surprise, I am working on a poetry project about the family and want to understand their daily life in Milltown better.
