The Caldwell Public Library’s local history collection is a little richer thanks to recent donations made by former Caldwell resident Robert A. Young.
Among other items, Young donated a 1922 Grover Cleveland High School (now James Caldwell High School) yearbook which belonged to his mother, Emelda (Holt) Young.
The copy of the Clarion joins the many Caldwell yearbooks available at the library. But their collection is not complete. According to the winter newsletter, the library is missing the following years and would appreciate donations.
Young also presented the library with two war ration books from World War II and a copy of the 1949 Building Code of the Borough of Essex Fells.
He is a past member of the Caldwell Volunteer Fire Department and retired chief of the Florham Park Fire Department.
There's lots going on at the library. Read the Winter issue of the Caldwell Public Library newsletter.
