Fred Norton (1893-1918) may well be the most outstanding person to have graduated from Lakeside-Danbury high school according to David Glick, despite the fact that he lived only 25 years. Based on his years of research, Glick highlights what is known about Fred’s youth on the Marblehead Peninsula, his athletic accomplishments at Ohio State University and his service with the U.S. Army as a pilot with the 27th Aero Squadron. At the conclusion of a week when Lakeside education seminars have explored various topics about World War One, this Heritage Society program remembers a local Marblehead man who made the ultimate sacrifice.
David Glick has spent parts of the past 87 summers in Lakeside. A prolific collector of Lakeside history in oral, printed and photographed formats, he has donated his multiple collections to the Lakeside Heritage Society Archives. Glick has presented Sunday programs and led walking tours for many years and served as author/editor for the Heritage Society’s quarterly MANIFEST describing historical facets of the Peninsula from 1991-2013.
