Ruby Horwood

Ruby Horwood, DV Chapter Chair from 1969-70, went on to become the first female president of the AMC (clubwide) from 1974-75. During her time in those roles, she was active in the Tocks Island Dam battle, which led to the creation of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and also in protecting Franconia Notch in the White Mountains from the proposed widening of I-93 to a four-lane superhighway. She celebrated her 100th birthday in the spring of 2017 at a special party with the female DV Chapter Chairs who had followed in her footsteps.
