Volume II of The Bronxville Journal, released in 2003, had an equally fascinating line-up:  the Bronxville life of late-night television talk-show host, Jack Paar; the story of Samuel Alexander Scribner, a circus owner and burlesque businessman; an interesting but little-known connection between the architect of Bronxville’s Concordia College and Ellis Island; and William Lawrence’s plan for Sarah Lawrence College, the “finishing school for girls” that has become the outstanding college we know today.
