Born in Byronville, Georgia, Edward Fisher (1904-1970) moved to East Elmhurst in 1945 and became an active member of the community. Employed as a truck driver by Solomon Brothers, he is best remembered for his involvement in various civic movements, including the building of this pool.
Mr. Fisher was president of the 16 Square Block Civic Association of East Elmhurst, and a member of Community Board 3. He fought for alternative parking for the neighborhood, and helped eliminate plans for Highway 678, which would have displaced many residents and forever altered the fabric of the community. He also worked to improve public education. In 1969, Fisher was the East Elmhurst/Corona chairman of the Independent Citizens Committee for the Reelection of Mayor Lindsay. He was a member of the Mayor’s Urban Action Task Force and the Coordinating Council of East Elmhurst.
