County Historian profiles the people and politics that put the Jersey Shore on the map
Monmouth County Historian Randall Gabrielan is a prolific author and undisputed authority on the history of our region. He is also a good friend to the Museum who has given his support and shared his expertise generously through the years. He will speak at the auditorium of the Board of Education Building, 163 Monmouth Road, Oakhurst at 7:15, Tuesday, June 6, on the people and politics covered in his recent book, The Birth of the Jersey Shore.

The book’s table of contents is a Who’s Who of the famous (and not so famous) personalities who left their mark. They are artists, inventors, entertainers, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, historians, and politicians. The eclectic collection of biographies has one common theme: an influence on the Jersey Shore that helped make it what it is today.

Some names and stories are familiar. We know about Grant and Wilson, Marconi, Springsteen, Stephen Crane, Dorothy Parker, Madame Marie, and Nucky Johnson (to name a few). But even more fascinating for their unfamiliarity are the characters who founded seaside communities, designed the Shore’s iconic buildings and saved others from the wrecking ball, pulled shipwrecked passengers from the sea, and enjoyed fame in their day as some of the country’s most beloved entertainers.

Please join us June 6 to hear the stories from the author himself. Birth of the Jersey Shore will be available for purchase.

The speaker event is open to the public, free of charge. (Bring your non-perishable donations for the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.)
