This piece of local history about four Newarkers who made a difference features the following key benefactors of the Newark Museum:
* Lida Clanton Broner
* Caroline Bamberger Fuld
* Howard W. Hayes
* W. Clark Symington
Each of these people brought to the Museum different interests and perspectives, and their collections as well as their ideas helped shape the institution in the first half of the 20th century.
