“Warwick in History” – The following is from an article in THE NEW YORK TIMES of March 10, 1976:
Cecile Hulse, who was born and raised in Bellvale, New York has recently passed away in her residence, the Prince George Hotel in New York City, at the age of 81. She was a June 1908 graduate of the eighth grade at Warwick.
In her long and varied career, she painted orchids in the jungles of Mexico and South America. Her most memorable exploration was in the jungles of the United States, gathering material for the book entitled SUWANNEE RIVER, which won her a Literary Guild Award.
The author of seven books, she expanded her interest and contributed to THE GARDEN DICTIONARY and THE WORLD BOOK ENCYCLOPEDIA. Of her more than sixteen books, many were historical novels.
Miss Hulse married Louis Matschat, an engineer, who passed away in 1960.
