Seek fellow students, faculty, or others involved with 1950-1960's "Woodcastle School for Boys", Somerville Road, near Liberty Corner, N.J. Robert Clifton 'Tony' Lumpkin, PhD, Headmaster. Built on the 1920's by the Wm. H. N. Beatty (d1931) family as "Castle Utopia". Featured in Tim Kettle's 1981 TV show, "That's Incredible", as a "Ghost Castle". Terence M. Lynch, Headmaster, changed the name to "Chartwell Manor"; and in 1971, removed it to Mendham, N.J. Soon defunct there. Original "Castle Utopia / Woodcastle" burnt under questionable circumstances.

Jim Miller, Southport, North Carolina
