Margaret Price Recounts The Origin of the Seeing Eye

Presently you can view;
Mrs. Margaret Price
Part 1
The Origin of the Seeing Eye
on Cablevision Public Access Channel 21 (in Morris County)
Wednesdays August 4, 11, & 18 from 7:00-7:30 PM

I had the pleasure of interviewing, for several hours, Mrs. Margaret Price, an amazing and very vivacious Denville Resident who has lived in her present Denville Residence since 1960’s.

Mrs. Price, with her amazing memory, took me through her husband and her lives as well as her family’s. I created this first part from all the information Mrs. Price conveyed to me, in the interviews, about the origin of the seeing eye in Denville, New Jersey.

The residence Mrs. Price lives in was originally the Ebeling Residence, the first home of the Seeing Eye in the United States. Mrs Price and her husband, Robert Edmonds Price inherited the home from Robert’s Aunt and Uncle (the home was in Aunt Florence’s name). Florence’s husband, Wilheim Heinrich Ebeling (known affectionately by Margaret and her husband as Uncle Willi) was one of the first developers of the Seeing Eye in the United States. His connection came through the original founder, Morris Frank, who contacted Willheim on his expertise in training of German Shepherds. And the rest is history. Learn more about Uncle Willi and Aunt Florence through Mrs Margaret Price’s enthusiastic account of them.

Almost a month had passed since my last post. As the cliche goes “Life’s happening while you are making other plans. Hope you are enjoying somewhat our record high temperature summer of 2010. The fiesta of colors of the flowers blooming and the butterflies fluttering around has caught my eye. Water is the secret to survival outside in this summer heat. Either drink a lot of it or swim in it.

Since the last post several new short videos have crept onto our Denville Youtube channel; http//

1. The 2010 Denville Duck Race (uploaded about 2 weeks ago).
Every year Denville Rotary Club holds a fund raiser. Rubber duckies are sold for an amount to raise money for several civic causes. At the end of June the multitude of rubber duckies are loaded onto a big yellow payloader which proceeds to dumb them into the Rockaway River by Gardner Field. And the race is on. Great video with great sound track.

2. Mayor Ted Hussa, Bikes Matter (uploaded about 2 weeks ago) Mayor Ted Hussa is very serious about making Denville a bike friendly town. He talks about his bike goals at the Denville NJ Summit (Feb 27, 2010) and shows it in this year’s Bike Rodeo 2010, both events shown in this video. Presently the Mayor and newly formed Denville Bike Committee are working hard toward acquiring a Bike Grant from the Morris County to create bike paths and bike lanes on main roadways in Denville center, all to be interlinked into a Denville Biking system.

3. The Denville July 4th 2010 Celebration in Gardner Field. (uploaded about 1 week ago)
This is just an intro to the event. The event marks the memorable first time use of the new band stand, at Gardner Field, by Mayor Ted Hussa, the Mac String Group and the West Morris County Concert Band (financed and constructed by the Rotary Club for Denville Township). The concert was amazing. I am hoping to create a 30 minute Cablevision program, soon, from excerpts of the West Morris County Concert Band
performance at the Denville July 4th 2010 Gala.

I am in the process of finishing a new Cablevision program on another remarkeable resident in Denville, Margaret Price. Presently Nick Picciano’s Show, Part 1, is still being aired on the Denville TV Cablevision Program on Wednesdays, channel 21 at 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM since June 23, 2010. You can still see that show this Wednesday, June 21 2010. You can also see that show on the Denville TV Vimeo Channel listed on the last Denville tv Blog (June 22, 2010) post. Hopefully I will have the new show up the following Wednesday, June 28th, 2010.

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Denville Sri Lanka Day 2010,
Saturday, August 7th, 2010, held in Gardner Field,
to be hosted by our one and only Jay Liyanage and his wife Theresa,
two other remarkable Denville Resident.
