Tom Dunn,former archive director of the Museum, will present a gallery talk about the history of The Ramsey Journal. Established by John Y. Dater II in 1892, the paper presented news and views of interest to the people of Northwest Bergen County. For 75 years, until the paper was sold in 1967, three generations of the Dater family chronicled the births, deaths and marriages, triumphs and defeats, trials and controversies of the communities it served. During a period of time that spanned five wars, a great depression, and the rapid post-war suburbanization of Bergen County, the editors and publishers of the Ramsey Journal preserved the rich first draft of history of Ramsey, Mahwah, Allendale, Upper Saddle River, Saddle River and Waldwick.
