March 9, 2018 Collection Spotlight No Comments

We continue with our periodic spotlight of objects, documents, photographs and other items you can find in the collections of the Historical Society of Haddonfield. Thanks again to summer 2017 volunteer Britni Dellinger for helping to compile these features. Next up:

NAOMI V. FITHIAN WORLD WAR I SCRAPBOOK

2005.010, Gift of Marianna Robson Johnson

This scrapbook was created by life-long Haddonfield resident Naomi Vernan Fithian Robson (1896-1969), who was 21 years old and unmarried when the U.S. entered World War I. Naomi’s father was noted illustrator Frank Fithian (1866-1935). Her incredible scrapbook contains photographs, newspaper articles, drawings, ephemera, and other mementos about what was happening in the U.S. and abroad during the war. The scrapbook was donated to the Society in 2005 by Naomi’s daughter, Marianna R. Johnson, and it was displayed as part of the Society’s fall 2017 exhibit about Haddonfield in World War I.
