Nineteenth-Century New Jersey Photographers

Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Monmouth County Archivist Gary D. Saretzky will lecture on the history of photography in New Jersey at the Mary Jacobs Library in Rocky Hill, NJ.

Of the approximately 3,000 different photographers who were active in New Jersey before 1900, a number lived or worked in Somerset County. Gary D. Saretzky will profile these pioneers and discuss them within the larger context of New Jersey photography in the nineteenth century. Among the photographers to be discussed are William A. Apgar (active 1876-1892), Columbus S. Gernert (active 1898-1913), and Edward T. Kelley (1868-1885), all three based in Somerville.
