“A must-read for anyone interested in New Jersey maritime history! As a maritime historian and founder of the New Jersey Maritime Museum, I found this book to be an excellent record of events surrounding the history of this station. Sadly, not enough is being done to preserve New Jersey’s rich maritime history, but Ken Able’s well written story of the Rutgers University Marine Field Station is a step in the right direction. Looking forward to reading more from this author!” – Deborah C. Whitcraft
