Leon Rothenberg won a Tony Award this year for sound design for The Nance

Stephen A. Venear was born Athanasium Frank Venearski, on Feb. 2, 1887 in Chemerootza, Russia and arrived in America in 1908, at the Port of New York, on the ship Statendam out of Rotterdam, Holland. He was 21 years old and already a trained nurse.

The diverse boyhood Leon Rothenberg had in Altamont led to a career on two coasts manipulating sound.

As villagers mourned the loss of Altamont’s landmark garage this week, speculation was rampant about the cause of the June 5 fire that gutted the long-time repair shop.
