On November 14, 2017, the Newark History Society celebrated its 15th anniversary with a gala reception at The Newark Public Library for over 200 people. The Society presented its Outstanding Newark Scholar Award to Warren Grover, author of Nazis in Newark. Timothy J. Crist delivered the Society’s Paul Stellhorn Lecture on “Historians, Civic Memory, and the Story of Newark.”
The Society and our partner Rutgers University-Newark have received a new $10,000 project grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission to support the Newark Archives Project during 2018-2019. Overall, the Society has raised more than $260,000 from individuals, NJHC, foundations, and corporations for the Newark Archives Project since 2009.
At the 2012 New Jersey Forum on November 17, 2012, the New Jersey Historical Commission presented its Award of Recognition to the Newark History Society “for Outstanding Service to Public Knowledge and Preservation of the History of New Jersey”. Ronald Becker, Head of Special Collections and University Archives at Rutgers in New Brunswick, made the presentation to the Society on behalf of NJHC.
