Hudson County Genealogical & Historical Society | News Releases - Mayor Hague's War on Radicals Is Feature of “Come Home to History� Fair October 9

SEPTEMBER 17, 2010 -- HUDSON COUNTY, NJ -- Frank Hague, mayor of Jersey City from 1917 to 1947--perhaps most widely remembered for his declaration “I am the law”--is the subject of a video by Bob Leach to be shown at “Come Home to History,” Saturday, October 9.

...
Leach, founder of the Jersey City Historical Project, will be present to introduce the video and answer questions.
Bob Leach is known as Jersey City's storyteller. Born in 1937, he has steeped himself in Jersey City folklore and in the era of Hague. For the past 35 years he has interviewed “oldtimers” for the stories that convey the feel of a place sometimes missed by academic historians.
...
As writer Jonathan Fitzgerald noted in a Jersey City Independent feature, “Leach is a genuine storyteller whose narratives are an invaluable treasure that, in a very unique way, preserve an essential brand of local history, the benefits of which will resonate down to future generations.”
