Antoinette “Toni” Caruso McGuire
Antoinette “Toni” Caruso McGuire, 97, passed away peacefully at home in Ft. Collins, CO, on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
Toni was born in Princeton, NJ, in 1921 to Jennie K. and Daniel M. Caruso. Her father emigrated from Italy and became a fine custom tailor in Princeton and was one of the first tenants on Palmer Square. Her mother continued the business after he died in 1951 until her retirement in 1982, at age 91. Not surprisingly, Toni was always smartly dressed.
Together, her parents were leaders in the Italian-American community in Princeton and at St. Paul’s Church. She learned from them the values of faith, family, hard work, civic responsibility, and the importance of a good education.
Toni attended St. Paul’s School, graduated from Princeton High School in 1939, and was the first in her family to earn a college degree, graduating from the New Jersey College for Women (Douglass College), Class of 1943. She was selected for a National Science Foundation graduate summer program at Kent State University in 1966. She later earned a Master’s Degree in Education/Counseling from Trenton State College. She was a member of Phi Delta Kappa, a professional association for educators.
Toni worked for the Gallup Poll conducting interviews. She was the director of one of the first community based correctional programs for young girls in the late 1960s. As a counselor at Mercer County Community College she was instrumental in shaping and guiding young college students’ lives, many of whom were the first in their family to attend college. She later worked as a school social worker in Dunellen, Dutch Neck, and Bordentown, NJ, and in Neshaminy, PA.
Toni lived in Pennington, NJ, for 45 years where she and her husband Gene raised their family. She was an active member of Saint James Church where she was a member of the Guild, helped establish a parish library, served on the scholarship committee, and chaired and/or worked on countless church dinners and events. Living across the street from the Little Church, their home was often a social gathering place after Sunday Mass.
Toni volunteered at the local schools, served on the PTA, and was active in the efforts to regionalize the Hopewell Valley School System. When her son went to join Cub Scouts and there was no more room, she became a Den Mother, providing an opportunity for a half dozen more boys to join Cub Scouts. She was an active supporter and volunteer throughout her sons’ scout experiences and saw them both achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.
Toni and Gene were among the founding members of Penn Brook Swim Club in 1957. She helped her sons become good swimmers and cheered them on as members of the Penn Brook Swim team. She later watched her granddaughters learn to swim there as well. Her family maintained its membership continuously for more than 50 years.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, Eugene “Gene” F. McGuire, in 1982.
Toni met her second husband, Gordon T. Godly, at a church prayer group in Pennington. She delighted in saying… “What do you think I was praying for?” Toni and Gordon were married in 2004 and since then have lived in Fort Collins, CO, where her son Dan and his family live. She and Gordon spent nearly 20 wonderful years together. He was the tall, distinguished British gentleman and she the zesty Italian. Together they made a wonderful pair.
Her husband Gordon, her two sons, James and his wife Elizabeth, Pennington, NJ, Daniel, Ft. Collins, CO, four granddaughters: Meredith (Forrest), San Francisco; Laurel (David), Littleton, CO; Abbey, Lambertville, NJ; Michelle, Medford, OR; and a great-grandson Charlie, San Francisco survive her. Her husband’s children: Gerda, Titusville, NJ; Martin, Sarasota, FL; Christopher, Rochester, NY; and their respective spouses, children, and grandchildren also survive her.
Toni McGuire lived a long, full, and loving life and set an example for the generations that followed and was the “wind beneath their wings.”

Norman Glickman, a retired University Professor at Rutgers University’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, passed away on Wednesday, May 8. He was 76. Professor Glickman was known for connecting theory and practice as a way to improve the lives of urban residents. According to his colleagues, his contributions to the field of urban planning benefited everyone he knew and millions he never knew. His legacy is that of an institution builder, an intellectual leader, mentor, friend, and mensch.
During his tenure at Rutgers University (1989-2015), he conducted research and teaching in urban planning and public policy and studied the work of nonprofit organizations. Stuart Shapiro, Associate Dean of Faculty at the Bloustein School said, “Norm was a treasured part of the Bloustein community. He was a great teacher, a dedicated mentor to junior faculty, and a good friend to many of us.”
From 1989 to 2000, Dr. Glickman directed the Rutgers University Center for Urban Policy Research, which later became part of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy in 1992. During that time, he and CUPR won awards for research and service from the United Nations, the Fannie Mae Foundation, the APA, and other organizations. In 2003, Dr. Glickman was part of a team at Rutgers that received a five-year, $10-million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish a Center for Learning and Teaching. The thrust of the CLT was “Mathematics and America’s Cities” and Professor Glickman’s role was to research and teach about the connection between teaching math in inner-city schools to institutions and families in poor neighborhoods.
An economist by training, Glickman served as the co-director for the Rutgers Economic Advisory Service (R/ECON) at the Bloustein School from 1991-2003, which continues to provide forecasting and other economic analyses for businesses and governments.
Prior to coming to Rutgers, Dr. Glickman was the Mike Hogg Professor of Urban Policy and Professor of Economics at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin (1983-1989), where he taught courses in political economy, urban and regional economics, and urban poverty.
He was named a professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania in 1970, where he founded and directed the Urban Studies Program (1970-74). At Penn he was awarded the Lindback Prize for Distinguished Teaching from the University of Pennsylvania and holds HUD’s Certificate of Special Achievement. Norm put in place the guiding principles that shaped Urban Studies at Penn in the late 1960s/early 1970s when, as an assistant professor in City Planning, he took on a group of idealistic and committed undergraduates interested in studying cities. The stars were aligned because the new Penn President, Martin Meyerson, was a city planner, which allowed Norm to navigate the institutional waters and make the major official. The essence of the program — its commitment to connecting theory and practice — was there at the beginning.
Dr. Glickman became a legend early in his career thanks to his renowned PhD work. He created the first regional econometric model out of the work of his advisor, Nobel Prize winner Lawrence Klein. While Klein is known for having produced the first national macroeconomic forecasting models, Norman Glickman’s dissertation presents the first of all regional (subnational) macroeconomic systems forecasting and simulation models.
“Norm’s academic record speaks for itself. At the University of Pennsylvania, Texas, and at Rutgers, he was a major player in developing and analyzing social and economic policies for cities and metropolitan regions. CUPR and Norman individually won many awards and grants for path-breaking policy-related research,” said Michael R. Greenberg, a longtime colleague, University Professor, and former dean of the Bloustein School.
Throughout his career Dr. Glickman also served as an advisor to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on national urban policy, was a member of Governor James J. Florio’s Council on Job Opportunities (1992-1993), was a member of the City of Austin, Texas Economic Development Task Force for the Austin Comprehensive Plan and served as chair of the Economic Development Commission for the City of Austin (1985-1989), and served on the Vice President’s Task Force on Youth Employment as a principal analyst for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
He was the recipient of the President’s Award, the highest honor of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association, given to CUPR for its contribution to urban planning in the state of New Jersey and was awarded a Certificate of Special Achievement by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Dr. Glickman also worked with community development organizations throughout the country on issues of economic development and poverty and was a certified mediator of public policy disputes.
Dr. Glickman was the author of numerous books, monographs, and reports, including The New Competitors: How Foreign Investors Are Changing the U.S. Economy (New York: Basic Books, 1989) with Douglas P. Woodward, which was translated into Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish; Choices for American Industry (Washington, D.C.: Labor Policy Institute, 1987) with Ray Marshall; Econometric Analysis of Regional Systems: Explorations in Model Building and Policy Analysis (New York: Academic Press, Inc., 1977); and Economy in Crisis: The State of Working New Jersey, 2009 (New Jersey Policy Perspective, 2009). After his retirement in 2015, he edited and contributed to LBJ’s Neglected Legacy: How Lyndon Johnson Reshaped Domestic Policy and Government (University of Texas Press, 2018). He served on the editorial boards of several journals including Journal of Planning and Markets, Regional Studies, Planning and Markets, Journal of Planning Literature, International Regional Science Review, Urban Affairs Quarterly, Journal of Regional Science, and Regional Science and Urban Economics, among others.
Dr. Glickman earned his Ph.D. and Master of Arts in Economics as well as a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
Son of Beatrice and step-father Harry Glickman and father Abraham Pesso, he is survived by his wife of 37 years, Elyse M. Pivnick and two daughters, Katy Rose Glickman and her husband Joshua Ellis and daughter Madeline Claire Glickman and partner Shomik Sarkar.
