Page Davis Bramley (SHS 1938)

FOUNDER, VOLUNTEER, BUSINESSWOMAN

Page Bramley was the spirit and flame of the Scarsdale Alumni Association. Following her elementary school years in Larchmont, White Plains and Hartsdale, the Davis family moved to Scarsdale where Page’s pep and energy led to the cheerleading squad. She planned on a professional career as a secretary, matriculating at Katherine Gibbs School in New York City. World War II intervened and Page signed on with the WAVES and was stationed in Washington, D.C.

Her post-war years were marked by Page’s boundless energy. She seized on the G.I. Bill of Rights to attend and graduate from the University of Miami in 1952. In the 1950s, she and her husband traveled widely. Then she turned her contacts and her new knowledge to the resort business, where she was in charge of public relations for a number of hotels and directed resorts including Castle Harbour, Harbour Island and Pirates Cove in the Bahamas. Later she began a new career selling real estate in the Bahamas and In Miami, Florida.

The best was yet to come. Moved by the good spirits among her classmates at their 50th reunion in 1988, Page founded the Scarsdale Alumni Association. Over the years she served as President and Executive Director of the organization. No matter her title, Page’s energy and special love for Scarsdale High School kept the Alumni Association afloat. She continued her leadership role well into her eighties. Page died in December, 2006.
