Articles in Volume III of The Bronxville Journal, published in fall of 2004, ranged from those who were passionate about art to those who protested war.  Art Historian Meg Hausberg explored the relationship between Lawrence Park artist Otto Bacher and James McNeill Whistler.  Sarah Underhill, who grew up in Bronxville in the 1970s, revisited a poignant episode in the village’s past in “The Mothers’ March for Peace,” a protest against the Vietnam War.  Marcia Lee, former mayor of Bronxville, reflected on “When the Lawrence’s Left Bronxville,” the departure of the family whose name in the first half of the 1900s was almost synonymous with Bronxville.  And historian Marilynn Hill looked at village life in the mid-1800s by discussing medical practice and care in early Bronxville as recorded in several diaries of the period.
