 This Month’s Presentation: “The Statesman and the Socialite: Union General Carl Schurz and Fanny Chapman,” by Dr. Peter Lubrecht

General Carl 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.

Dr. 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.


Wednesday, April 19 -- Monmouth County

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

April 21 through February 18 -- Mercer County

It’s about time to visit Morven Museum & Garden for

Striking Beauty: New Jersey Tall Case Clocks, 1730–1830

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

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

 Morven Museum & Garden, 55 Stockton St, Princeton, NJ is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

THAT Was Invented in New Jersey??

The Garden State is known far & wide for its Turnpike, delicious tomatoes, Springsteen & Bon Jovi. BUT the cell phone, submarine, telegraph, light bulb, boardwalk and drive-in movie theater got started here too! AND who has not used a Band-Aid, enjoyed a can of Campbell’s Condensed Soup or a rousing game of “Monopoly?” On hot summer days we’re all thankful for Mr. Carrier’s invention of the air-conditioner in 1921. But we can’t stop there! Entertaining story teller, historian and author, Glenn LeBoeuf, reveals the strange beginnings and wonderful outcomes of inventions (many used daily) that began in New Jersey.
