PRESENTING YOUR COMMISSIONER
A "young old-timer" is the way
Samuel L. Iselin, newest member of
the Park Commission, refers to him-self.
Sam, appointed to this post by
Mayor Glacken to fill out the unex-pired
term of David Kadane who re-signed
from the Commission, has
been a Freeporter practically all of
his life. He went through the Free-port
school system, took an LLB at
Dickinson Law School where he was
a member of The GracchiHonor Soci-ety
and a, member of Phi EpsilonFra-
Samuel L. Iselin
Sam practiced law in the village
until World War II came along and he
served honorably in the Armed Ser-vices
for three year s, being separated
with the three up and one down stripes
of a staff sergeant.
Business, civic and compassionate
might be the three major interests of
Sam outside of his home and family.
He is very proud that, during his term
as President of the Freeport Community Council the Senior Citizens •'
Group was activated and Sam feels that this touching concern of the
community for the dignity and well being of its older citizens is a
mark of a sound civic character. His civic interest has revealed it-s
elf in the factthat he is a former Vice President of the Freeport
Chamber of Commerce and a former Vice President of the Atlantic
South Civic Association. And business? Director of Sales of the Patty
Petite Division of Kay Dunhill, Inc. , in New YorkCity, a family con-
- trolled business. --- . ._ . —
Sam is frankly delighted with his Park Commission appointment for
this'is not his fir st'tirrie 'around. He had "previously served on this com-mission
under Mayor Cyril Ryan with Branch Rickey Junior and Everett
C0 Fur man. A firmbeliver in park developement Sam feels the Park
Commission has done a fine job in the past and will continue tp?do sc
in the future. ,•
Loyal to the village all the way Sam is married to a Freeport gal
the former Milderd Kalban. They live at 112 Front Streetwith their
91/2 year old daughter Susan0 Sam says he plays a little golf but his
major hobby is trying to keep up with Susan who lists swimming, skat-ting
and bowling as just a few of her many hobbies. Sam says he man-ages
to keep up thus far but the pace is getting rougher.
