Famous New Jersey Women Lecture This Afternoon

Famous New Jersey Women Lecture This Afternoon
In recognition of Women's History Month, photographer and historian Jim DelGiudice will lecture about famous NJ women on Monday, March 6 at 2:30PM.
Read more

Down the alphabet, from Dr. Virginia Apgar, inventor of the Apgar score, to legendary Revolutionary War heroine Temperance Wick, New Jersey women have been integral to American history. While the lives and contributions of these pioneers don’t fit a specific category, what they do have in common is both their energy and the sense of purpose they brought to their lives.

A lifetime Morris County resident, Jim DelGiudice  has used his eyes and voice to document the New Jersey scene for more than half his 58 years. His architectural photography for books published by Rutgers University Press along with his lectures at Drew University have won him a share of the state’s Historic Preservation Award three times. Jim is an adjunct assistant professor at County College of Morris and also has been an adjunct lecturer at Columbia University. He presents talks to adult and professional groups around the metropolitan area.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
