The Jewish Historical Society of Greater MetroWest has digitized Warren Grover’s papers. The Warren Grover Collection features the research materials he used in his landmark publication, “Nazis in Newark.”

There’s also the Fur Worker’s Project, his research on Newark’s fur workers union, which includes documents about labor unions, disputes and demonstrations, unemployment insurance issues, and the history of how the union was created. It is a fascinating look into the struggles of factory workers against the powerful mob, police brutality, and government pushback.

The collection also has materials from Grover’s political files, his work with Citizens for Charter Change, and personal papers.

To make arrangements to gain access to this collection or any other materials at the Jewish Historical Society of Greater MetroWest, call archivist Jill Hershorin at (973) 929-2995 or email her at jhershorin@jfedgmw.org.
