Recorded in 1977, Edward Walton shares the story of how his grandfather, John Lutz, immigrated from Germany to the United States; eventually making his way to Glassboro, NJ. Edward Van Istendal, the grandson of Edward Walton, is the interviewer.
This oral history was created for the Glassboro Memory Mapping Project, a collaborative digital scholarship project exploring cultural and historical geography, public history, memory, and placemaking in Glassboro, New Jersey. The project is being developed through an innovative partnership between Rowan University’s Cultural Geography Honors Course, Rowan University Libraries Digital Scholarship Center (DSC), the Glassboro Historical Society, and the Heritage Glass Museum.
