Wet as the Atlantic Ocean: Prohibition in NJ


The last state to ratify

he 18th Amendment—the measure that made the manufacture, sale, or transport of alcoholic beverages a federal offense for the 13 years, 10 months, 19 days, and 17 hours of Prohibition—was repealed in 1933. It is the only Constitution Amendment ever to be undone. And its doing and undoing were the results of a tug-of-war between the “Wets� and the “Drys� that played out across the country. A new exhibit opening to the public Sunday, June 24, in the Richmond Gallery of the Eden Woolley House reveals where New Jersey stood in that tug-of-war. “Wet as the Atlantic Ocean: Prohibition in NJ� brings the debates, glamour, and violence of the Roaring Twenties home.

How did it happen? The prohibition debate had been argued across the country for nearly a century before the 18th Amendment outlawed alcohol nationwide. Maine passed the first state prohibition law in 1846 and by the Civil War, several other states had followed suit. So what happened in the first decades of the next century to elevate debate into a campaign for a Constitutional Amendment—that took the fight national? • Drunkenness was a real problem. The proliferation of saloons fueled a drinking culture, and between 1900 and 1913, beer and alcohol consumption soared. Women and families suffered. • Women had been campaigning for abstinence since the early 1800s. By the turn of the century they were finding their voice, stridently advocating for the vote-— and increasingly for prohibition. Organizations like the Women’s Christian Temperance Union were gaining ground. • Many Americans felt threatened by the influx of immigrants whose cultural norms around alcohol threatened prevailing

Ours was the last state to ratify the 18th amendment and it did so in 1922, two years after the measure was in effect. (Rhode Island and Connecticut never ratified.) We fought Prohibition in court. New Jersey joined Rhode Island in a losing challenge before the Supreme Court (1920). And we were back in 1931, when the Supreme Court overruled a New Jersey federal judge’s decision invalidating the 18th Amendment.

New Jersey’s resistance

N.J. Governor Edward Edwards, shown here signing an anti-Prohibition measure, ran in 1919 opposing the 18th amendment and did all he could as governor to prevent state enforcement. He famously boasted, “I’m from Hudson County and I’m as wet as the Atlantic Ocean.â€? He could have been talking about the state he led. white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant values. • On the global scene, the unthinkable carnage of the First World War and the alarming success of the Russian Revolution fueled a nostalgic longing for control and order. Under these conditions, pro-prohibition sentiment grew. By 1919 more than half the country lived in dry states, counties, or towns. If the 18th Amendment were to be passed, it needed to happen before the 1920 census, the results of which would give greater power to the anti-prohibition cities.

It’s no surprise, then, that Prohibition enforcement in New Jersey was lax. Local fishermen and boaters shuttled bootlegged liquor to shore from rum-running ships lined up just outside the legal limit. Speakeasies thrived with little risk of raid. The state underfunded enforcement. Corruption was rampant. Local police turned a blind eye. Even the teetotaling and incorruptible Ira Reeves, the man put in charge of federal enforcement in New Jersey, resigned after eight months and took up the anti-Prohibition cause! Join us at the opening, June 24 see how our state and our county fared in the fray . The new exhibit runs through June 2019.

Final weeks to visit the World War I exhibit

One last “Local Story of World War I”


he current exhibit in the Museum’s Richmond Gallery, “NJ and the Great War: Local Stories of World War I” closes June 14. But before it goes, we can slip in one more story of a local young man gone to war. Museum member Bruce Horn recently shared with us the story of Henry Comegys, a founder of the Wanamassa Fire Company, lifelong Ocean Township resident, and WWI hero. Henry was an ambulance driver on the Italian front. He was a awarded the Italian War Cross for his courage and endurance, going days without rest or change of clothing

while returning the injured from the front. Henry described his exploits in the Asbury Park Press days after his return home. He talked of entering an Italian town after its liberation from the Austrians. “Thousands of gas masks, rifles, and artillery pieces were scattered along the road,” left by the retreating army. He praised the valor and dedication of four Austrian surgeons who stayed behind to care for their wounded. Poison gas was not an issue, according to Henry. He describes driving the ambulance quickly enough through the cloud to avoid contamination. He explained the Italian defense: they set tar-soaked, sausage-shaped bags of hay afire. The rising heat carried the poison gas with it, cleaning the air. Henry died in 1953. His Press obituary doesn’t mention his war service. We welcome the chance to tell his story here.

hat better way to honor the memory of those who endured the deadliest war of modern times than by reflecting on the words of those who fought. On Sunday, May 20, guests gathered in the Museum for reading of the poems and letters of World War I soldiers. The afternoon was the brainchild of Museum member Joe Bove who organized and hosted the event with board member Lois Kiely. (Let us know what you’d like to see happen at the Museum.

Speaker to talk on the lost amusement parks of the North Jersey Shore


oastal Monmouth County has been a summer destination for vacationers seeking relief from the heat of the city since the early 19th century. And in the 20th century—within the memory of many of us—the lure of our beaches, boardwalks, and rides moved millions of day-trippers to take to their cars and travel down Route 35 (and later the Parkway) in search of sea air and summer excitement. At the Museum’s next Speaker Event, 7:15, Wednesday, June 13, at the Board of Education building, 163 Monmouth Road, Oakhurst, local historian Rick Geffken tells stories of amusements, now lost, that drew the crowds to our shore. From Highlands to Manasquan, with stops in Long Branch, Asbury, and Ocean Grove, he shares images and tales of resorts, rides, theme parks, and the characters behind them.

Asbury Park Press sports columnist shares stories


hey say every picture tells a story. And some tell more than one. In recent years, Asbury Park Press sports columnist Steve Edelson has scoured the newspaper’s photo archives, pulling out images for a series of historical retrospectives chronicling sports at the Jersey Shore. And along the way, not only have the archival photographs breathed life into the words, some have taken on a life of their own, telling both a story—and ultimately, a backstory. He has shaped his retrospectives into a talk, illustrated with photos of legendary Jersey Shore games and athletes that played them. His research, coupled with his years of experience writing about the regional sports scene, yield fascinating insights. Steve presents his talk as part of our Speaker Series. Join us 7:15, Wednesday, August 22 at the Board of Education building, 163 Monmouth Rd., Oakhurst. Explore the history of the archival images and see for yourself how freezing a moment in time can tell way more than a thousand words. 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 Fulfill food bank.)

In 1963, award-winning photographer Frank Beardsley went to shoot the game at Neptune High School and got more than he bargained for. He labeled this image on the back simply as ``The Fight.’’ When the shot was uncovered more than five decades later, the events of that night and stories of those captured by Beardsley’s lens came to life once again.

John Huss has lived in Ocean Township close to 60 years and he’s been an active community leader nearly as long. Among many roles, he served on the Township Planning Board, the Township Council (1975-1979), and the Sewer Authority (1980-1985, Chairman, 1985). He is a long-time supporter of the Museum, where he currently serves as a Trustee and champion of the Tower restoration project. The Township has recently recognized John’s contributions by naming a street for him—a new road off West Park Avenue near the Oakhurst Post Office.

I Remember . . .

Tracking down Ocean Township’s speakeasies


y interest in the history of Ocean Township’s restaurants and bars was sparked in 2000 by an article in the Asbury Park Press. In it, the owner of the Blue Swan Diner mentioned being one of just five eating establishments in town along Rte. 35 when he opened in 1975—and how they “now seemed to be sprouting up like weeds.” Well, I remembered the old weeds and decided to track down and pay tribute to the many establishments that were being forgotten.

A little help from my friends Old-timers—like retired Ocean Twp. detective Jimmy Jones, retired deputy police chief “Bootsy” Hundertpfundt, and former mayor Jim Garrity, Sr.—joined the quest. We compiled quite a list and I thought in light of the Museum’s upcoming exhibit on Prohibition, it would be fun to share with you some of what I learned about Ocean Township’s speakeasies.

acres between Wickapecko Dr. and the lake (which provided a convenient route for boats delivering bootlegged liquor). Wanamassa Gardens, on Wickapecko Drive, bought by Emilio Gonzales in 1922. Emilio’s sister had a moonshine operation in New York and her illegal liquor arrived by boat to the shores of Deal Lake where it was allegedly hauled underground through tunnels to the club. Crestwood Lodge, on Deal Road in Oakhurst, site of today’s Temple Magen David. This speakeasy was a favorite hangout of the notorious Purple Gang, headquartered in Detroit, that ran the country’s largest bootlegging operation. Cinderella Tea Room, on North Edgemere Dr. in West Allenhurst, today a private residence. It’s said ladies arrived in their chauffeur-driven cars for “tea” and relied on their designated drivers for the ride home. Lake Tavern, on Asbury Ave. near the site today of the Montessori school.

The challenge

Paul’s Club, today’s English Manor Tracking down speakeasies is on Logan Road, Wanamassa. It was not easy. By definition, they are built in 1927 by a family with the surclandestine.

Many a state and federal agent were corrupt. For the most part, local ofMamie Reynold’s, near or possibly ficials turned a blind eye. My search of the Township’s police on the site of today’s Oakhurst Post Office, West Park Ave., records revealed just one lone raid on a local speakeasy—and Oakhurst. This speakeasy is a hard one to research. It was that was in a private home! We’re left with family stories and also a house of prostitution—and few patrons were willing to handed-down recollections. share their stories!

The list so far . . . As best we can thread those stories together, here is at least a partial list of Ocean Township’s speakeasies: Ross Fenton Farm, the legendary Wanamassa nightclub on the banks of Deal Lake that thrived for the first half of the 20th century—including the 13 years of Prohibition. It occupied 14

Still searching I know my list is incomplete, especially if we consider the speakeasies in private homes. If there’s a story handed down in your family, I’d love to hear it. Email oceanmuseum@yahoo.com. John Huss

It takes a village: This year’s Spring Tea The Museum’s 14th annual Spring Tea was held April 28 at the West Park Recreation Center in Oakhurst. The Tea has earned a reputation for great food and good fun. Our 87 guests knew it and again made the event a sold-out success. Behind the scenes, it really does take a village to carry it off. Volunteers plan the tea, find donors, assemble baskets, make sandwiches and desserts, serve and entertain our guests, and more. Our quilters work months to create the handcrafted items for sale at the Museum Shop. Claire Taylor, museum Junior Docent, entertained with two songs. Heather MacDonald as Mrs. Woolley told a story about buying tea at the general store. Guests bought chances to win their favorites among the 36 gift baskets. Many wore elaborate hats and four won prizes for their headwear. This year, our “village” included nearly three dozen volunteers, led by event co-chairs Brenda Wityk and Marge Edelson.

Hat contest winners (from the left): Rozanne O’Donnell, Brick (Most in keeping with the theme); Cathy Larson, Sea Girt (Most elegant); Doris Carroll, Asbury Park (Most comical); Sharon Ranaude, Jackson (Most original).
