IN-DEPTH INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Scope and Content:
The Gladys Lody Papers focus on the history of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. This collection consists of one folder of newspaper and magazine clippings related to the Boardwalk. A second folder is comprised of two pieces of correspondence, various Boardwalk tourist pamphlets, materials from the Boardwalk’s 100th anniversary celebration in 1970, reproductions of Boardwalk images, a listing of the 1956 Boardwalk summer attractions, and Boardwalk Cracks programs from 1937 and 1938.
Biographical information about Gladys Lody, and her relation to the Atlantic City Free Public Library, is unknown. The Gladys Lody Papers were once housed with the ACFPL Scrapbooks Collection (H035). Archival staff at ACFPL disassociated the Gladys Lody Papers from the ACFPL Scrapbooks Collection when the Scrapbooks Collection was processed in August, 2011.
Given the brevity of the collection’s extent, the Gladys Lody Papers are housed in a box along with the Ed Davis Papers (H075), the Bonnie Davis Papers (H076), and the WPG Radio Collection (H077).
