Hon. Charles Buchwald
The Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club mourns the death of our
District Leader, Charles Buchwald, on December 3, 2015.
Born in Brooklyn, Charles obtained his academic training
at the University of Minnesota and received his PhD in Psychology
at Yale. He returned to Brooklyn where he raised his sons
David and Adam and worked at Downstate Medical Center.
A lifetime Democrat, Charles became a member of the
Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club when he moved to Manhattan.
He quickly was elected to the role of District Leader and
established his reputation as an active, outspoken,
dedicated community leader, recruiter of volunteers
and proponent of the democratic process. He was appointed to
Manhattan Community Board Six
in 2000 where he became a
respected advocate for sensible land use policy and served in a
variety of positions including Vice Chair and Treasurer.
He was proudest of the title of Grandfather and as
the loving husband of Debby Blank Buchwald.
To us, he was an honored friend and mentor.
He will be missed.
