Letter from Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr.
In conjunction with the January 10, 2018 announcement that the first batch of issues for the Perth Amboy Evening News are now available on Chronicling America, the project team received a gracious acknowledgement from Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ). Congressman Pallone represents New Jersey’s 6th Congressional District, which includes Perth Amboy. It reads in part:
“I would like to commend the New Jersey State Library, Rutgers University Libraries and the New Jersey State Archives for undertaking this important project. Here in New Jersey we have a rich history and innumerable contributions in science, innovation, politics and the humanities. The digitization of these newspapers will provide user friendly access of these historical records to all individuals across the globe. I am proud that The Perth Amboy Evening News is the first New Jersey newspaper available through this invaluable project.”
We thank Congressman Pallone for his kind and encouraging words. Click on the link below to read the entire letter.
