Advocates For New Jersey History
The Advocates for New Jersey History was founded in the early 1990's as a friends organization for the New Jersey Historical Commission. But within a few years the members became aware of two important considerations: first, that one of the major accomplishments of the Historical Commission had been to create and bring into awareness a history community statewide; and second, that no one state agency could survive and thrive unless and until the entire history community grew and throve.
