Abstract

Louise Conley of Princeton, New Jersey is the granddaughter of Francis J. Cheney, the second principal of Cortland Normal School from 1891 until his death in 1912. Growing up, she never knew her grandfather and did not inquire more about him until she was much older. Both her mother, Clara Cheney, and her father, Rollin McCarthy were graduates of Cortland Normal School. They later pursued their master’s degree at Cornell University. Her parents and both set of grandparents are buried in Cortland Rural Cemetery, which is located near the college. Although Louise Conley herself is not an alum, her roots at SUNY Cortland are just as strong. Louise Conley shares her family story and is a big advocate for her grandfather.
