The William Keresey Collection

LPD Chief William Keresey

William Keresey was Larchmont Police Chief from 1934-1974. During his years of service, he collected pictures of police-related events such as collisions along with general pictures of the Village. His son, who was chief from 1986-2001, allowed the Larchmont Historical Society to scan these pictures for the Photo Archive. 

The pictures include many vehicular incidents.

Larchmont has a rich history of active local political activity. This collection features advertisements, pamphlets and flyers donated by candidates over the years and scanned into the digital archive.

The Historical Society has attempted to include both sides of each campaign or issue and is always interested in adding more material from elections in the Village of Larchmont, Town of Mamaroneck or Mamaroneck School District.
