Explaining the origins of the colony, established in 1882 outside of Vineland, New Jersey, this catalog chronicles the development of the colony as it matured into the three close-knit communities of Norma, Alliance and Brotmanville. Topics include the Russian pogroms of 1881-1882, Jewish aid societies, cultural pastimes, and more.
