We note the death of Emanuel P. Caras as reported last week [Obituary, The Scarsdale Inquirer, June 7] with both sadness for the loss and gratitude for his personality and many years of community service. 

Manny Caras, as we knew him, came to the Scarsdale Arts Council via Scarsdale’s former Chamber of Commerce, where he was long active. His contributions to the work of the Arts Council for many years, however, went well beyond Chamber liaison. His architectural expertise, knowledge of the Scarsdale community and his spirit contributed greatly to our work in many areas. These included, but were by no means limited to, historic preservation and other arts projects.

We miss him already and shall continue to do so.

Thank you, Manny, and Godspeed,


President, Scarsdale Arts Council
