Description

The Fifteenth United State census records for New Jersey, Union County, Summit, Ward 1, for 1930. The census divides the population into categories of name, age, sex, race, marital status, occupants and relation to head of house, whether the home is owned or rented, value of home or rent, whether home is a farm residence, and whether the home has a radio. It also reports college attendance, literacy, birthplace and birthplace of parents, citizenship status, language spoken before coming to United States, year of immigration, occupation or business, class of worker, whether they worked the previous day, military status, and the war or expedition participated in.

A notable resident listed in this record is David Carl Haberstroh. Born on February 9, 1923, in Summit, New Jersey, Haberstroh was the son of local ophthalmologist Joseph Haberstroh. He enlisted in the United States Army in June of 1942 at the age of 19. After his service ended in July of 1947, Haberstroh, his wife Elizabeth, and his family lived several places before settling down in Venice, Florida, in the 1980s. David Carl Haberstroh is buried in the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
