Foreword
The New Jersey State Chamber of Commerce dedicates this volume to the citizens of New Jersey in the hope that a brief but vital story of the life, industries and
resources of the State will stimulate interest in our present opportunities and responsibilities.
Washington spent two and one-half years of the Revolution on New Jersey's bloodstained soil. Emergencies have always developed men to meet them and thus in every national crisis the State has borne its full share of the burden. Men of all races and creeds have united to make its people sturdy and resourceful. We stand on the threshold of great events. The tread of marching millions soon to be added to our population is already heard. Our problems require the leadership of men able to see into the future and willing to make sacrifices for the common good.
Transportation, water supply, housing and education must be dealt with on broad and adequate lines. Industrial and residential areas must be properly defined. Our dreams of the future must be converted into the achievements of the engineer. Our desire to make life better for all people must crystallize into action based on accurate knowledge of conditions and needs. We must preserve the sacred traditions of the past, and in guarding its heritage, plan for a greater future.
We confidently believe that today is better than yesterday and that tomorrow will be better than today. Faith, vision and courage on our part will produce if not an ideal State, one of which we may well be proud. To this end the officers and directors of the State Chamber pledge their united efforts and urge upon all the importance of cooperation in advancing the interests of New Jersey.
WILLARD I. HAMILTON, President.
