Local school children gathered at the dedication of the Gay Head Lighthouse Park with the sign which reads “Lighthouse Park, established 1989, Preserved and Protected by Vineyard Environmental Research Institute,” which was accomplished thanks to the leadership of William Waterway Marks. The man standing in the front left is the late Charles Vanderhoop, Jr. who was born at Gay Head Lighthouse where his father was the lighthouse keeper. (Photgraph courtesy William Waterway Marks.)
