    • Margaret Karle Schak - Rutherford Historic Narratives


      from Rutherford Historic Narratives Added 31 1 0

      Margaret Karle Schak was a child of the Depression. And while many in Rutherford were affluent, her family struggled to survive. Still, she remembers her childhood as a happy time. She lived in an era when automobiles were a rarity, and riding her bike across the Erie Railroad tracks to get a drink of water from one of the area’s “boiling springs” was a normal occurrence. The winner of the first North Jersey Spelling Bee, she would travel to Washington for the national finals. There she met President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Later in life, she was the first woman ever elected to the Rutherford Borough Council. A sudden resignation resulted in her becoming Rutherford’s first female mayor. Rutherford Historic Narratives interviews Margaret Karle Schak. Interview highlights include the importance of listening at the dinner table as a child, her success as a champion speller, and running for office as a woman and "getting the vote out." Rutherford Historic Narratives were produced by the Rutherford Civil Rights Commission, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of its founding.

                The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program in the United States for unemployed men age 18-25, providing unskilled manual labor related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state and local governments from 1933 to 1942. As part of the New Deal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), the CCC was designed to provide relief for young men in relief families who had a very hard time finding jobs during the Great Depression while implementing a general natural resource conservation program on public lands in every state and territory. Maximum enrollment reached 300,000 and in nine years some 2.5 million young men participated.
