SAVAGE--Arthur V. All of us at The Havens Relief Fund Society will miss Arthur V. Savage's wisdom and compassion. The longest-serving member of the Havens Board of Managers in its 141-year history, Mr. Savage worked to relieve poverty and distress in NYC for 58 years (1954-2012) including 22 years as Havens' President. Thousands of needy NYC residents have benefitted from Mr. Savage's steady, reliable, and gentle leadership.
