New Jersey and the Great War

T

he Second World War looms large in our cultural consciousness. The unambiguous rightness of the cause. The countless books and movies. The familiar family stories and firsthand accounts of surviving veterans. Not so the First. We know less, relate less, think less about World War I. Its veterans are gone. Its cause was complex and its alliances confusing. Its senseless carnage (17 million civilian and military dead) is painful to revisit.

Spreading the history bug across generations

N

othing we do at the Museum gives us more satisfaction than passing our love of history on—especially to a new generation of potential aficionados. We get this chance each year with a new crop of third graders whose class trip to the Museum is built into the curriculum. And, in recent months, we’ve expanded our reach. A call from Dr. Ava Latte, an instructor at Brookdale Community Collage, led to a visit Dec. 7 by her education class. Their assignment? To write a lesson plan for a hypothetical class trip to the Eden Woolley House. The class toured the galleries and learned from Museum docents how to tailor information to the interests and attention spans of elementary and high school students. On Jan. 13, Ocean Township High School teacher Krysten Semerano brought her history class for a two-hour visit. Their assignment? To create their own “museum exhibit” on a topic they had studied during the term. They toured the galleries with an

eye to understanding signage, use of artifacts, and exhibit design. They presented their “exhibits” in their classroom Jan. 27. The results were impressive. One team (pictured above) tackled “Pre-Civil War

steady stream of guests launched their holiday season with a visit to the Eden Woolley House, transformed for the weekend of December 3 and 4 with greens, trees, lights, model trains, a gift boutique, and a bakery stocked with homemade treats. Some were drawn by the opening of the new mini-exhibit, “Ross Mary Ann McKean helps out as Dave Dahrouge draws the winning quilt raffle ticket. Marie Dahrouge and Mary Hill look on.

Next up in the Museum’s Speakers Series— Joe Bilby at 7:15, Tuesday, March 14

Speaker to tell the surprising story of submarine warfare off the Jersey coast

T

he Jersey Shore is known for many things, but a hotbed of submarine activity during World Wars I and II? In their book, A History of Submarine Warfare Along the Jersey Shore, co-authors Joe Bilby and Harry Ziegler document this surprising piece of maritime history. At 7:15, Tuesday, March 14, at the Board of Education Building, 163 Monmouth Rd., Oakhurst, Joe Bilby shares their findings in the next talk of the Museum’s Speakers Series. Those findings trace the state’s connections to submarine warfare back to 1776, the year the first (and not very successful) American submarine sank in the Hudson River Historian Joe Bilby off Fort Lee. The connections continue with the story of Paterson resident John Holland (1841-1914), the self-taught engineer credited with inventing the first truly viable

submarine. He ran his experiments in the Passaic River. Most fascinating perhaps are the stories of German U-boats planting mines and sinking ships off the Jersey coast during the World Wars. On “Black Sunday,” June 2 , 1918, the German sub U-151 stopped, evacuated, and sank six commercial ships along our shore. Twenty-four years later,

in the early months of our involvement in World War II, German subs were back, destroying merchant ships traveling along our coast. Please join us March 14 to see the images and hear the full story. Speaker Joe Bilby, a Newark native, Vietnam veteran, and current Historian for the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey, has written over four hundred articles and nineteen books on New Jersey and military history. Over the years, he has generously shared his expertise and personal collection of photographs and memorabilia with our Museum. A book signing follows the talk. And a very brief general meeting—just long enough for the election of Museum officers—opens the evening. The speaker event is open to the public, free of charge. Donations are appreciated. Refreshments are served. (We collect and welcome nonperishable items for the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.)

Woolley House hosted podcast recording

W

hen Jim Foley, who heads the organization restoring the Church of the Presidents in Elberon, was asked to appear on “The History Author Show” podcast along with Louis Picone, author of the recently published The President is Dead, he made an offer to host Dean Karayanis. “Would you like to record the show amid stories and artifacts of the Presidents who visited the Monmouth County shore?“ It was an offer Dean couldn’t refuse and on Saturday, December 10, the three men sat in front of microphones in the Richmond Gallery alongside President Grant’s chair and Woodrow Wilson’s desk (artifacts on loan

from the Church of the Presidents). Although the podcast listeners won’t see the setting, the participants could. And they took the opportunity to comment on and recommend the Museum’s “Presidents at the Shore” exhibit that surrounded them. Louis’s book tells the stories of the deaths of the Presidents. Two of the most dramatic and enigmatic involve Presidents Garfield and Harding, both featured in our exhibit. To hear this interview and others, check out HistoryAuthor.com.

Hindenburg over Asbury May 6, 2017 is the 80th anniversary of the explosion of the German passenger airship Hindenburg at Lakewood, NJ. The disaster killed 36 (amazingly, 62 of the 97 on board survived). This photo from the Museum collection shows the Hindenburg flying over Asbury Park the day of the explosion.

Support from trusts and foundations in 2016

L

ast year, the Museum received gifts and grants that helped us offer a rich lineup of exhibits and events, upgrade our technology and video capacity, and continue to restore the historic Tower behind the Woolley House. We appreciate the support of these institutions and thank them for their generosity.

Message from the Museum

President

“The fertile soil of New Jersey attracted the first settlers who farmed the land.”

A

s years fly by and technology takes over our lives, few remember that before the 1960s, Ocean Township had a tradition of farming in all sections of town. Local farmers sold their produce on roadside stands. Milkmen delivered to your door—possibly from Dangler’s Long Lane Dairy Farm on West Park Avenue. We were, in good part, a rural community.

• The William T. and Marie J. Henderson Foundation ($1,000)

• The 1772 Foundation ($11,250 grant for the painting of the Tower)

• NJ Cultural Trust ($7,260 technology grant)

• The Jefferies Family Foundation ($250)

• The Rita & Harry Greenberger Foundation Inc. ($500)

• The Renzulli Charitable Trust, sponsored by Libero Marx and Giuliana M. Renzulli ($250)

• IBM ($500)

From the 1930s until 1970, the site of today’s Library and Museum was Stucile Farm, the country estate of Wall Streeter Ira Haupt, his wife Enid Annenberg Haupt, and his family. Stucile was a working farm with barns for livestock, greenhouses, gardens, and a curious tower resembling a combination lighthouse

and windmill that housed the pumps and tanks for the well that supplied water to the farm. Six years ago, the Museum began to restore the tower, which stands as a symbol of our rural past. We received grants from the Monmouth County Historical Commission, The 1772 Society, the Haupt Foundation, and others. To date, we’ve replaced the windows, rebuilt the porch, repaired and painted the exterior, and sponsored two Eagle projects to clear surrounding brush and install a new walkway. Now, we are about to begin a campaign to raise funds to complete the restoration and create exhibition space in the Tower to tell the story of our farming history. Please consider joining the effort. Become a member of the team to “Save the Tower.” Call the Museum at 732-5312136 and add your name to the list! Paul Edelson

I

t was June, 1974. I had just completed my first year of college, and was joyriding in my father’s Mercury Monterey with my boyfriend, Keith. Turning off of Ocean Avenue onto Park Ave. in the Elberon section of Long Branch, we saw something that made me stop short. It was an imposing old church with dark wood shingles, a large square belfry, porte cochere, gables galore, and dramatic Gothic Revival touches.

“Wait ‘til you see this!”

services began, dressed in Victorian-style outfits that Keith’s mother had sewn for me. As the old church bell rang, I’d dash through the hedges, across the well-manicured lawn, and up the walk, holding on to my bonnet. Trustee Arthur White would be watching me from the entrance with a big grin. “Slow down . . . you have time,” he’d say, handing me the church bulletin. One week, Mr. White wasn’t there. I learned he was ill and in the hospital After the service, I paid him a surprise visit, carrying the church bulletin and the enormous vase of flowers from the altar. “I’m not running this time—I can barely manage these in this dress!” That made him chuckle.

Old churches intrigued me, but this one looked frightening! “The front doors are open,” Keith said. “Let’s check it out.” I was reluctant. He urged me on, up the red brick path to the entrance. “Come on, he said—wait ‘til you see this!” Friendships remembered He was right.
