John T. Cunningham
John T. Cunningham long has been known as 'New Jersey's popular historian'. His first book, This is New Jersey published in 1953, has never gone out of print. His twenty-plus documentary films include several in the New Jersey Historical Commission's series on historical New Jersey, in which he has acted as host. In 1986 he was awarded a television Emmy for his documentary film, Dreams of Distant Shores. Mr. Cunningham recently passed away on June 7th, 2012 just shy of his 97th birthday. He left behind a tremendous legacy, which lives on every time a New Jersey student picks up his textbook.
