Where is Riverdale? In Massachusetts......
- Here's a little piece of information about Bob Montana, creator of
Archie Comics, from Wikipedia:
"In 1936, the family moved to Haverhill, Massachusetts, and from 1936
to 1939, Montana attended Haverhill High School. When he was 17 and 18
in 1937-38, he kept diaries of local events and news stories,
illustrating the diary pages with his cartoons. The students and
faculty of Haverhill High later inspired the leading characters in the
Archie cast, as revealed in a 1970s Boston Globe article by film critic
I lived near Haverhill, MA for a few months and heard stories about Bob
and his creation of the Archie characters.
