Scope and Content Notes:


 


The Charles R. Hutchinson Collection
contains approximately 500 items that were collected by the
businessman and local historian, Charles Hutchinson, 1838-1927. 
This collection, which spans the years 1788-1927, contains
indentures of Monmouth County families; letters to Ida M. Tarbell
about Monmouth County; articles and a membership list of the
Sober Society of Allentown, 1895, a temperance organization;
returns of births and deaths in Monmouth and Mercer counties,
retained by Dr. Archibald Alexander Howell as attending
physician, 1878-90. A long-time resident of Allentown, Hutchinson
operated a general store before entering the real-estate and
insurance business. He wrote about twenty books on genealogy and
local history, none of which was published.


 


Provenance:


 


This collection was purchased by the
Society in 1928.
