Boonton Tales Celebrates Women’s History Month

We recently received an anonymous donation of the 1939 Commencement Program from Boonton High School.  In itself, the gift was a delightful surprise, and we thank the thoughtful donor.

When we opened the program, we found another fun surprise:  Margot Ammann, the daughter of the famous bridge builder and Boontonite, Othmar Ammann, is listed as the Class President and presenter of the Memorial of the Class of ’39.

Margot died in 2010, having lived a full and rewarding life.  We are pleased to highlight her life in honor of Women’s History Month.
