Abstract

"North by East" piece about the town of Georgetown, which has honored 89-year-old Adolph Ipcar for having had the foresight twnty years ago to lead a movement to acquire for the town an unspoiled track of more than 30 acres that constituted the heart of the community, including the town wharf, the store, the post office, cottage, baseball field, and two tracks of undeveloped land behind the wharf that was offered by the owner for $60,000. Knowing the town wanted the land but would not vote to buy it, Ipcar organized a fund-raising among locals and summer people that collected more than $32,000. At the same time, he and others applied for and won a $29,000 federal grant. For his vision, Ed Pert, Georgetown's first selectman, this year introduced a motion at the town meeting to create the Ipcar Nature Preserve on twenty-five acres in Five Islands. The proposal received unanimous approval.
