Newark City Documents Collection

About this Collection

This is a collection of documents from various departments of the City of Newark. For now, the majority of documents are from the Newark Housing Authority, which worked to manage public housing, the Newark Central Planning Board, the Newark Department of Health and the Newark Human Rights Commission, and its earlier name the Mayor's Commission on Group Relations, which worked to prevent discrimination. You can read reports and newsletters from these departments, as well as all other kinds of documents! These documents span from the 1940s to 2000s and show a lot about how government worked over the years!

This collection also includes reports from the Board of Education from 2012-2018 and Water Department 2003-2017.
