The Historical Society of Greenfield performs a 1950s radio play “Crazy Judah”
The Historical Society of Greenfield and Greenfield Community Television teamed up to produce a radio play from the 1950s about important historical figures that just so happen to have ties to Greenfield, MA!
Theodore and Anna Judah were key figures in finding funding and, more importantly, surveying the route for the Transcontinental Railroad across America and through the Rocky Mountains.
Originally produced by Dupont’s Cavalcade of America and written by Arthur Arent, Crazy Judah premiered in 1950. The Historical Society took the original script and decided to turn it into a teleplay. To learn more about the actual history of the Judahs, visit the Historical Society of Greenfield at 43 Church St, Greenfield, MA 01376.
