Author
Author Robert W. Sands Jr. has been fascinated with the town's history since his early years growing up in Glassboro. He is the museum coordinator and a life member of the Gloucester County Historical Society. He is also a life member of the Heritage Glass Museum in Glassboro, and he assisted in the restoration of the highly decorated USS New Jersey. In Glassboro, his latest book, he pays tribute to the heritage of the town that developed around the early “glassworks in the woods.”
