Baruch Plaques Saved from the Scrap Heap — based on an article in the Newsletter of the Friends of the Camden Archives and Museum, April 2001

Four bronze plaques that once hung on the walls of Camden’s first hospital were saved from the scrap metal heap by Harry Kline, owner of Camden Steel and Metal Company. The plaques commemorate the parents, friends, and cousin of Bernard Baruch.

Marlene Mischner, who served as associate archivist at the Camden Archives and Museum in the early 1980s, alerted Director Agnes Corbett and in December, 2000, the plaques were presented as gifts to the Archives.
