Scope and Content Notes:

 

The Charles R. Hutchinson Collection contains approximately 500 items that were collected by the businessman and local historian, Charles Hutchinson, 1838-1927.  This collection, which spans the years 1788-1927, contains indentures of Monmouth County families; letters to Ida M. Tarbell about Monmouth County; articles and a membership list of the Sober Society of Allentown, 1895, a temperance organization; returns of births and deaths in Monmouth and Mercer counties, retained by Dr. Archibald Alexander Howell as attending physician, 1878-90. A long-time resident of Allentown, Hutchinson operated a general store before entering the real-estate and insurance business. He wrote about twenty books on genealogy and local history, none of which was published.

 

Provenance:

 

This collection was purchased by the Society in 1928.
