History of (the) Tuxedo

Tuxedo cartoon (1)
Kay Yeomans of the Northwest Bergen History Coalition passed along this fascinating old cartoon about the origin of the tuxedo.

Note the first illustrated panel. I know that the Lenape who lived near the present-day Celery Farm called the area "Wolf Swamp," in the days before it became Fell's Meadow. Same tribe most likely. Perhaps the swamp was named for them and not the four-legged mammal.

Kay also recommended a Town & Country magazine story on the history of Tuxedo Park, here.

(Thanks, Kay!)
