Susan Carol Barto, Writer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in government, education and writing.
Originally delving into the fields of education and government, Ms. Barto commenced her career as a secretary to the dean of students at Montclair State University in 1960. She subsequently transitioned to secretary of the Presbyterian Synod of New Jersey for one year, executive secretary of the Union County Republican Committee for eight years, a legislative aide to State Senator James Vreeland for two years, and a paralegal for Dempsey Dempsey & Sheenan for four years. Locally, she was most recently a lecturer for Our Lady of Lourdes for one year, teacher for Our Lady of Lourdes for three years, head of volunteers at the Hunterdon Art Museum for nine years, an active member of the library board for the Borough of New Providence for seven years, and a county committee woman for the Union County Republican Committee for 12 years.
In her most recent years, Ms. Barto has been a prolific author, penning ten short stories as well as several books, including “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” “Profusion of Lilacs,” “Early Scenes of a Marriage,” “The Highway Man,” “A Society of Two,” and “Palm Sunday.” Ms. Barto has been interested in writing ever since she was a child, her writing being featured in the school newspaper. Her shining moment, however, was being published in a book about drive-ins entitled “Fabulous 50s.”
The recipient of a Plaque of Appreciation from the library board of the Borough of New Providence in 1986, Ms. Barto has been highlighted in several editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the World, and Who’s Who of American Women. Looking toward the future, she hopes to become published in a local magazine.
