Planning continues for Archives Week in Monmouth County

Contributed by Gary D. Saretzky

More than twenty New Jersey history-related organizations have already registered for Archives and History Day at the Monmouth County Library in Manalapan, organized by the Monmouth County Archives, on Saturday, October 12.   Exhibit tables for archives, historical societies, government agencies, local history collections at public libraries, and other not-for-profit history organizations are still available.  The theme this year is Prohibition in New Jersey and attendees on October 12 are invited to arrive in period costume (optional).  Marc Mappen, the featured speaker, will  address a topic related to his new book, Prohibition Gangsters: The Rise and Fall of a Bad Generation.  An exhibit on Prohibition in New Jersey co-curated by Dr. Mappen will be on view in the library beginning October 1.


For a preliminary October 12 program, plus information about four Archives Week seminars offered on October 7 and 9, see
