The Longwood Alliance is proud to announce the publication of the second of two local history books made possible by a grant from The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. “The Biography and Collected Writings of Thomas R. Bayles: Railroad Agent, Farmer and Historian, 1895- 1977,” by Donald Bayles, is now available for purchase for $20. This is a large, 715 page book, filled with hundreds of local history articles Mr. Bayles wrote for his decades-long “Footnotes to Long Island History” newspaper column. The Longwood Alliance’s other new book, “The History of Camp Upton: World War I through World War II,” by Donald Bayles and Paul Infranco, is also still available for purchase for $15. This 176 page volume is full of interesting photos and information about the amazing rise of Camp Upton in 1917 and the essential role it played in both World Wars. Both books will be on sale at the Brookhaven Town Fair at the Longwood Estate on Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10, from 10am to 5pm. Book sale proceeds will benefit The Alliance’s member group, the Longwood Society for Historic Preservation. Hope to see many of our local history lovers this weekend!
