Schoolmen's Club Plaques
William R. Smith:
To inspire the future with a record of the accomplishment of the past, the Schoolmen's Club assisted by the pupils of the Newark Public Schools has, since 1911, celebrated "Newark Day" each year by placing in certain prominent or hallowed locations tablets of enduring bronze commemorating significant events and outstanding personages in the rich history of our city, the "town on the Pesayack" founded in 1666. As a further contribution to our aim that the children of Newark like the Athenian youth shall leave our city not only not less but greater and better than it was transmitted to them, we have prepared this book of reference to the historical data commemorated by the tablets. We trust it will encourage further knowledge and love of Newark.
