The Haddonfield Preservation Society is pleased to announce that it has gifted to the Historical Society of Haddonfield the "Joan L. Aiken Archive of the Haddonfield Preservation Society". On Saturday morning, September 22, 2007, eight volunteers with three vans transported more than fifty storage boxes and miscellaneous oversized materials to the Historical Society of Haddonfield where the "Joan L. Aiken Archive of the Haddonfield Preservation Society" will be accessioned and archiveally processed for curation as a component of the Historical Society's research and reference materials on historic activities and events in Haddonfield. Joan L. Aiken spearheaded the preservation movement in Haddonfield more than forty years ago. She founded the Haddonfield Preservation Society in 1966 and served as its Executive Director, and driving force behind the preservation movement in Haddonfield, until her death in 2000. The archival materials were released to the Haddonfield Preservation Society from her estate upon her death by her husband, the late James Aiken, Esq., her daughter Chicky Lambert, and her sister Aida Lieberman, with the condition that the Haddonfield Preservation Society find an institutional repository where the materials would be made available to scholarly researchers and writers interested in studying the historic preservation movement in Haddonfield. To assist the Historical Society of Haddonfield with the expense of accessioning and curating the materials, the Haddonfield Preservation Society has also presented the Historical Society of Haddonfield with a check in the amount of $2,000.00. Copies of the award winning book Haddonfield Historic Homes: Success Through Preservation, edited by Joan L. Aiken, and published by the Haddonfield Preservation Society in 1991, are still available. Please address all enquiries to Carl Nittinger, c/o Haddonfield Preservation Society, P.O. Box 192, Haddonfield, NJ 08033. - - Carl Nittinger
