Local History Room Finding Aid

The Willingboro, New Jersey Local History Collection

In Memory of Rev. Dr. Efiong S. Utuk

Arranged and Described By Leah Gass, Linda Cope, David Koch, and Jessica Piper

Last modified January 3, 2019 – Linda Cope


  • The Willingboro Public Library serves as the primary repository for the Willingboro Local History Collection. The major emphasis of the Local History Collection is historical and current information about the Township of Willingboro, New Jersey. Subject areas include early settlers, recent immigrants, ethnic groups, development by Levitt & Sons, business, work, prominent individuals and events. Township government, local individuals, groups and organizations, and the Willingboro Public Library all are responsible for generating materials included in the collection.

    Extent: Approximately 20 cubic feet. It is important to note that this collection will continue to grow as more materials are generated in the months and years to come.

    Access: The purpose of the Willingboro Local History Collection is to preserve materials that document the history of Willingboro, and to make these materials available to researchers and the general public. The library holds these materials in trust for future generations and therefore, for preservation reasons, materials can only be used in the library.

    Tour of the collection may be arranged by appointment. Patrons will not be directly allowed into the Rev. Dr. Efiong S. Utuk Local History Room except when accompanied by library staff. Patrons must therefore make their request of local history materials known at the Reference Desk. Patrons must conduct research in a designated area. Loose-leaf paper and pencils are the only items the researcher may have out when archival items are being viewed. Photocopies may be made with the consent of the library staff.

    Every Researcher will be required to fill out a search record form that will be used to document the types of materials being used, and to notify the patron if any additional information is found on their subject of research.

    This finding aid is available both digitally and on paper. To search this document digitally for a word, type the “Control” and “F” keys simultaneously and then enter the word into the search box.

    The Willingboro Local History Collection is particularly rich in areas which document the social history of Willingboro Township. Primary sources date from approximately 1880 to the present. Secondary sources represent the history of Willingboro dating back to the Colonial era.

    The collection consists of a variety of formats including, but not limited to: books, manuscripts, pamphlets, correspondence, photographs, maps, meeting minutes, reports, scrapbooks, personal papers, ephemera, floor plans, newspaper clippings, programs, leaflets, press releases, journals, registers, plaques and audio-visual materials including microfilm and oral histories.

    Many researchers have undertaken past projects dealing with the history and demographics of Willingboro Township and these projects have resulted in extensive books, manuscripts and pamphlets represented in the Local History Collection.(Most Books in the Local History Collection are also cataloged and available by searching the Library’s catalog online.)

    Township government is represented in mostly non-official municipal records, such as periodicals, recreational programs, schools, development projects, housing, land acquisition, copies of resolutions, newspaper clippings, and census information.

    The history of local civic groups, clubs and organizations is also well represented in terms of scrapbooks, photo albums, community guides, newspaper clippings, and leaflets.

    A biographical file of prominent local individuals includes athletes, artists, activists, former mayors and other notable community members.

    The Local History Collection also contains some material on the history and folklore of Burlington County and the state of New Jersey.




                The Willingboro Local History Collection is constantly growing as more materials are added, and for this reason it was deemed necessary not to number the folders in each box. The container list to follow indicates each item’s intellectual and physical location within the collection. To help elucidate the location of an item, different type was used.


    Underlined denotes a sub series beneath the main series.

    Bold indicates the physical location of the material.


    Sub series are listed alphabetically, while item level material in each folder within that sub series is chronological from oldest to newest (with the exception of Publications, which are listed by author’s last name). Here is an example:
