#var:page_name# cover

The Historical Society of Moorestown, in conjunction with the Moorestown Library, is pleased to present HSM's Annual Spring Meeting on April 4, 2018, at 7 p.m. The night's presentation, "New Jersey's First Photographers," will be by archivist and photographer Gary D. Saretzky.

During photography’s infancy in the 19th century, approximately 3,000 different photographers were active in New Jersey. Quite a few lived or worked in Burlington County, including such pioneers as Thomas Baker and George W. Tichenor. Gary D. Saretzky will introduce us to the early days of photography and how people in New Jersey experienced and experimented with a medium that changed American society.

All lectures that are part of the New Jersey History Speaks series are free and open to the public. If you plan to attend this event, please contact the Moorestown Library’s reference desk at (856) 234-0333 to register. Those who are not registered will be admitted to the event as space allows.

This program has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the NEH or NJCH.
