This Month’s Presentation:
“The Statesman and the Socialite: Union General Carl Schurz and
Fanny Chapman,” by Dr. Peter Lubrecht
Schurz was a larger-than-life public figure whose exploits appeared in
newspapers nationwide during the nineteenth century. His letters to
Fanny Chapman, his secret love, leave a picture of an age of turmoil,
corruption, social graces, and artistic explosion. It took a
renaissance man like Carl Schurz to travel among the greats in the
literary, artistic, and political arenas with grace and judgement. The
tragedy of his life is that he is nearly forgotten in the modern world
in the face of revisionist history. He was a fighter for human rights
including all races and creeds and a pioneer muckraker in a corrupt
city of a "Gilded Age." Come hear the fascinating story
of General Schurz and his relationship with his ladylove, Fanny
Chapman, and their lives framed by the time in which they lived.
Lubrecht is the president of the Colonel Henry Ryerson Civil War Round
Table and was awarded the George Hartleb Memorial Award for Excellence
in German American Studies by the National Steuben Society in
2018. He is an avid researcher, with an interest in the Civil War
history and German and American history. Dr. Lubrecht has lectured
on German American contributions to American Culture locally and
nationally. He is an adjunct professor at Sussex County Community
College and has also taught at Lehman University, Jersey City
University, Bergen, Morris, and Passaic Community Colleges, and has his
PhD from New York University.
Dr. Lubrect will also be having a book launch and signing event after our
meeting for his new book The Statesman and the Socialite: Carl
Schurz and Fanny Chapman.

Last year's Speaker Series was all about shipwrecks.
Since this was so successful, that the Atlantic Highlands Historical
Society has decided to begin this year with the same topic. Historian
and author, Jack Grodeska, will be back to discuss the sinking of
the Mandalay. In the beginning of the 1900s, Atlantic Highlands was
a treasured resort town that would bring people from all over
by steamship or by train. The Mandalay steamship ferry was
one of many that would bring passengers from New York to Atlantic Highlands.
One fateful night, on Raritan Bay, in a dense fog, tragedy struck.
Come join us
on April 19th at 7:30 pm as Jack takes us back to that historic day. We
are located at 27 Prospect Circle in Atlantic Highlands at the Strauss
Mansion Museum. This event is free to the public, but donations are
always accepted. We do ask that you bring a non-perishable food product
or baby item to donate to Atlantic Highlands Food Pantry

It’s about time to visit Morven Museum
& Garden for
Striking Beauty: New Jersey Tall Case
Morven Museum & Garden is proud
to present the special exhibition Striking Beauty: New Jersey Tall Case Clocks, 1730–1830, on view Friday, April 21, 2023
through Sunday, February 18, 2024. The first exhibition of its
kind, Striking Beauty features over 50 tall case clocks,
representing almost as many different clockmakers. Over two thirds have
never been on public view before and will return to private collections
after the run of the show.
In an 1804 newspaper
advertisement, Trenton clock and watchmaker William J. Leslie touted
that he was “Not from Paris, London or Boston – But a Native of
New-Jersey.” At the time, the state was home to dozens of
craftsmen specializing in tall case clocks. Striking Beauty
examines the highly skilled work of New Jersey clockmakers as they
collaborated with cabinetmakers, ran shops, and formed professional
partnerships to create stunning, technologically advanced timekeeping
pieces. These freestanding pendulum clocks are as functional as they
are beautiful with faces embellished with intricate brass work or
painted designs of objects like ships, suns and moons. Internally,
their complicated workings are mechanical masterpieces; some even chime
the hour with melodies.
Spanning the colonial and
post-revolutionary period, clockmakers ran their shops with the
assistance of apprentices and often enslaved labor. Some carried on the
clockmaking tradition through several generations, often working
multiple trades, including silversmithing. Explore the five-gallery
exhibition to see the most comprehensive look ever given to the
ingenious work of New Jersey clockmakers. Clocks are on view from New
Jersey cities and towns such as Elizabeth, Newark, Burlington,
Flemington, and Salem, and more.
On Thursday, April 20 from
5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Morven Members are invited to join
us for the Striking Beauty Opening Reception. This free
evening allows invited guests to mingle, connect, and view the special
exhibition before it opens to the public the following day. To RSVP,
Members should email Megan Shackney, Chief Development Officer, at email@example.com.
Members and non-members
alike should save the dates for upcoming programming related to Striking
Beauty scheduled throughout the run of the exhibition in 2023 and
early 2024. To kick things off, join us for Perspectives in Identifying New Jersey Clocks, an illustrated talk by exhibition
advisor Steve Petrucelli, on Sunday, April 30 at 2:00 p.m. Then,
on Wednesday, May 24 at 6:30 p.m., explore the human and
environmental impact behind the rich mahogany exteriors of early
American tall case clocks with social and environmental historian Dr.
Jennifer Anderson at The Costs of Luxury: Mahogany and Tall Case Clocks in
Early America. Both programs are hybrid, offering virtual and
in-person options, with discounts for Morven Members and students.
For further questions,
including how to book your visit, please reach out to Morven’s Gift
Shop at 609-924-8144 x103, or by visiting www.morven.org/tickets.
