On January 28, Medford Leas residents and visitors heard an excellent lecture by Sam Still, about the work of William Still and his brother Dr. James Still. Sam is descended from William Still who is the subject of a PBS film. Underground Railroad: The William Still Story which tells the “dramatic story of William Still, one of the most important yet largely unheralded individuals of the Underground Railroad.” Another website, blackpast.org/aah/still-james-1812-1882, gives a brief bio of William’s brother Dr. James Still.
Sam Still also spoke about the Dr. James Still Education Center here in Medford. The nj.com website has an extensive article with a gallery of photos about Sam Still’s work in developing the Education Center. Donations can be made through the center’s website at medfordhistory.org/drstillcenter.
