February 26 Event to Celebrate HMHS Student Research about Haddonfield and World War II

January 9, 2019 Events Comments Off on February 26 Event to Celebrate HMHS Student Research about Haddonfield and World War II

The Historical Society of Haddonfield invites you to join us on Tuesday February 26 at 7 pm as we celebrate the work done by Haddonfield Memorial High School U.S. history students this winter as they researched World War II. The event will be held in the HMHS library, located at 401 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield.

This is the fifth year in a row that HMHS Social Studies teacher David Reader has brought his Advanced Placement U.S. history classes to the Historical Society to work with primary sources about World War II.

The students visit the Historical Society several times between November and February, and develop research projects centered on a collection of World War II letters sent and received by then-principal William “Bull” Reynolds. This year’s AP classes are also reviewing issues of the school newspaper, The Haddon Higher, as well as other records in the Society’s archives.

At this free culminating event on February 26, the students will be sharing their research and discussing their experiences. A small exhibit of primary source documents from the Historical Society will also be on display.

We hope you’ll join us at HMHS!
