Days of Yore
as recounted by

Bill Day


Pop Willits
Mr. Gleeson also remembered, when thinking of Hopkins Pond, how the Willits family, owners of the coal and lumber yard on Euclid Avenue, had an offspring who was always shabby in his dress and always needed a bath.  He was really a very disreputable character and everyone called him Pop Willits.  One day the fellows grabbed him, took him down to the pond and gave him a good bath.
