UPCOMING PRESENTATIONS
Canal author and historian Linda J. Barth will introduce you to the
people, the bridges, the locks, and the aqueducts that made the
canal work. This waterway, now the centerpiece of a popular state
park, transported men and supplies between New York and
Philadelphia during three wars. Inventor John Holland used the
canal to deliver his Holland VI submarine to Washington for its
Navy trials, and luxury yachts, like J .P. Morgan’s Tarantula, cruised
the waterway.  Come learn more about this gem of central New
Jersey.

The 19th Amendment at 100. 2020 marks the centennial of women's suffrage
in the United States. Why did it take so long and how did we finally get there?
Learn about this struggle and the role of New Jersey suffragist Alice Paul in
passing the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920, which gave
women the right to vote. Will the ERA be the next milestone that we
celebrate? Linda Barth worked with a statewide committee planning events
to observe and celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment.

Monday, June 1 -- The Garden State: Where Ideas Grow
Many people are familiar with Edison’s “invention factory” in Menlo Park, where he
patented the phonograph, the light bulb, and many more innovations. Yet many
other ideas have grown in the Garden State, too—New Jerseyans brought sound
and music to movies and built the very first drive-in theater. In addition to the first
cultivated blueberry, tasty treats like ice cream cones and M&M’s® are also Jersey
natives. Iconic aspects of American life, like Bubble Wrap®, the boardwalk, the
Band-Aid®, and even professional baseball itself started in New Jersey. Life would
be a lot harder without the vacuum cleaner, plastic, and air-conditioning, and many
other important advances in medicine and surgery were developed here.
Join author Linda Barth as she explores groundbreaking, useful, fun, and even
silly inventions and their New Jersey roots.
