One evening Mr. Childrey went to Camden to where the White Horse Pike ends or begins at Haddon Avenue near the Harleight Cemetery. He was to make arrangements for a wedding he was going to perform at a house near the then site of the Wetherill paint works. He was waylaid in a robbery attempt, shot and killed. Our town was shocked and grieved at his passing.
At the next Haddonfield Senior Class
exercises in June, the CHILDREY MEMORIAL MEDAL as awarded to the
senior in the class that year. Since then each year the
the highest achievement a Haddonfield senior can earn.
