FOCAAdmin  Sep.28.2011

We are saddened by the news of the death of our member, friend, and benefactor, William Lee Frost, on September seventh.

Bill, an early Aqueduct fan, started collecting Aqueduct material long before there was FOCA, or even the Croton Aqueduct Committee. In later years, he donated the bulk of his collection to the Croton-on-Hudson Historical Society -- with one exception: A piece of the original old wooden pipe of the Manhattan Water Company, founded by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in 1799. This he donated to FOCA.

A man of boundless good will, enthusiasm, and generosity, he will be missed greatly.
